Last week I made some stars out of rolled fonant. I made them 3 days before I needed them and stored them on baking paper in the pantry to dry. However they were still soft after the 3 days (held their shape, but if you pressed in the middle it would give). The books I have just say 'leave until dry', but how long should it take? And is there a better way to do it than I did?
Regular fondant without any additives can take up to two weeks to dry. If you add tylose it shortens it to under a week. I make most of my figures out of gumpaste or a 50/50 combo of fondant and gumpaste together so it can dry faster. HTH
I cut 2 circles out of fondant for mickey mouse ears and i put the in the fridge they got hard in a couple of hours
