How can I get MMF to dry? I cut out butterflies that I will be applying on buttercream icing and they dont seem to be drying up. Thanks!

If you just used MMF.. then you could be looking at about a week or longer (depending on how thick the pieces are) They will dry up... just like anything.. it will take some time.

Had you started out with a 50/50 mix of GP and MMF.. then a couple of days - I give myself at least 2 days for them to dry.

Next time try mixing a little Tylo powder with your MMF.

KammKakes, do u just add half of the GP and mmf? I'm new to fondant icing. I've also heard that u can add gum-tex.

You can add 50/50 gum paste to fondant or a teaspoon to about 4 oz of fondant. I take a 2 inch (more or less) ball of fondant and sprinkle tylose (about 1 teaspoon) on the work surface and knead it in. Pieces dry nicely. HTH
