I was drying some fondant bows in the garage, and it suddenly got foggy and really humid. The fondant is a bit sticky now. Will they dry out if I bring them inside now? I sure hope so because I don't have time to make more

Yes, they will dry out if put in an arid environment. If you have a dehumidifier, put them in a room with that running.

Sure they will! Assuming the humidity is lower inside anyway. What type of fondant? If it's not MMF, many types can be dried a little faster in the oven with just the light on (oven OFF). In any case, bring them inside and let them recover. Best of luck!!

Ok, well, just bring it in then - Pterrell recommended a dehumidifier. Great idea if you have one. Otherwise, it'll be fine just drying out in a safe place indoors. Don't put it in the oven or you'll have a real Mayday on your hands!! Good luck Dave!

Thanks. I'm kind of unhappy. It was drying out nicely, now it's shiny and soft. I'll let you know

Awwww. It'll be okay. Once that excess humidity/condensation evaporates, you'll be right back where you were before your freak weather change. Stop watching it and go do something else - you'll drive yourself crazy lol.

I just started decorating over the winter, so this was my first experience with humidity. I used MMF. I've never used tylose, would that help?

too cute! I don't know about your question as I use Wilton fondant but I do know that if you use 50/50 gumpaste and fondant it will dry faster then just fondant and you can use a fan to dry it faster. HTH!

I found this link where some people mention using tylose, maybe it will help you?

I would add a bit of tylose will really help firm up the bow for sure..especially in the humidity..cute cake.!!
