Hi JakiJ.... sorry to hear that, you must be very upset!

I made some fondant figures one evening, and put them straight into a tupperware container which I didn't open until the next morning. They were all glossy and sticky.... oh no! I left the lid off, and withing a few hours they had hardened up.

I know this is probably not a fast enough result for you, I have heard other people talk about methods to speed up the process, so maybe someone else will have some suggestions.

I'm sure you'll be fine if you leave them to dry in a cool dry room.
