I made some fondant decorations yesterday but it has been so humid that they didn't get hard. I don't have AC so I was wondering if there was something I could do to make it hard faster????
I am not sure, but have you tried putting it in the refrigerator? Since you don't have an airconditioner, maybe that would help. I don't know for sure though. Good luck.
did you add cmc or tylose, traganth?. It's so humid here at the moment I have to add it to fondant to cover a cake, no kidding
Fondant isn't designed to get hard unless you let it air dry a long, long time. You have to add gum trag, tylose or CMC.
Well usually I let it air dry but it is always hard by the next day. Didn't know you had to add stuff. Oh well. I am hoping it is hard enough to stand but we shall see.
A fan might help, a heat lamp, or put it in the oven with only the light on (make sure you tape a warning sign on the oven door while its in there so nobody preheats it without knowing you're drying something in it or they'll melt!)
What is the gum trag? Is that the same as gum tex?
