Are there any secrets out there to get gumpaste to set a little faster? I have a rush order and was wondering what is possible for me to do in such a short amount of time. I have about 3 1/2-4 hours to actually decorate. (cake is baked and iced)

I put mine in the COLD oven with just the light on. Works like a charm icon_wink.gif

ooh...I'll try that. I'm hoping that a gumpaste bow will dry in time.

Thank you!!! icon_biggrin.gif

You can put it under a desk lamp too, on a bed of cornstarch.

TexasSugar I'm glad to know that because my oven is usually on or still hot when I need to use it for the drying process. Great idea.

I dry my gumpaste stuff under a table lamp all the time... it works like MAGIC!!

I've been there with the too warm oven from baking many times. I do tend to dry royal icing pieces in the oven but those are usually done before I am baking. Gumpaste stuff, I've used a lamp for many of times.
