Stupid me, I just broke a number 5 for a topper out of 50 for a birthday party and I made another one. Is there any way to dry it FAST? Thanks for any help icon_smile.gif

You might try putting it in the oven with just the oven light on. I've not done this myself but I've seen several posts where others have done that to get the gumpaste to set quicker.

Ok, thanks. I wonder also about a fan? I'll give it a try. So frustrating and stressful

Blow dryer - low heat just a few minutes.

Wow, that's what I'm doing now. Will it be firm enough to stand on top of a cake?
