I use the warming drawer in my oven--you don't wanna go over 150 degrees or is it 160--well test that out--and don't touch anything until it comes to room temp and yeah it's wonerful--lots of cakers use them.

I saw a post on here the other day where somebody used the dehydrater, and they said it worked great!

Yes, a lot of people use a food dehydrator for that.

Haven't tried a food dehydrator, but I do sometimes put decorations in my oven with the fan on - usually with the temperature on as low as possible just until there's a little warmth then I turn the temperature off. That speeds things up a bit.
