I've had the loops for a fondant bow, and the loops for a gumpaste bow drying on my counter for days. The gumpaste was totally dry, and the fondant was firm. I decided to assemble the bows tonight, several hours ago - about 4 hrs ago. I used gumpaste glue to hold the loops together. I just checked and neither bow is remotely dry. Any idea how long this will take to dry? I turned off the air conditioning in our house yesterday, as the temperature and humidity both dropped a lot!

gumpaste dries for me in a few hours. Fondant can take days. But I add CMC to the gumpaste and work fast. But then I wire each loop and assemble on the cake.

What gumpaste are you using? Is it Bakels?

What kind of bow? Most kinds of bows I just assemble straight onto the cake...
