I am trying to make fondant darts for a dartball team. They keep flattening on the bottom. Any ideas how I can keep them rounded? They are fatter on one end where the tip would be and narrow on the other end where the feathers will be attached. How can I get these to maintain their shape?

put them into something that's rounded.........could you cut a straw in half and lay them in a drinking straw? Am I right in thinking that after you form them and let them sit to harden they're flattening?

Yes, they flatten as they harden. I need to figure out a way that gradually slants in the center & doesn't flatten all the way around. The feather end is narrower than the dart end so it needs to stay centered and the whole thing needs to stay rounded.

I wonder if you could make yourself a molded cavity to lay it in. Do you have any real darts?? If so, why not crumple up some aluminum foil around a real dart and pack it nice and tight leaving yourself the exact shape you need in the foil.

Hope that makes sense?

I think I read you can lay it in a pile of cornstarch (enough so that it won't touch the table)

I did as suggeted and laid them on formed flour. It worked great.
