do they need to be upright? They should be fine if they are just laying down. if they don't harden up, think about changing the design up a little.

i did not add anything to them, i keep flipping them over to dry front and back..they are fairly hard right now and yes i am going to have them upright...the bottom most card on each "hand" i made the thickest and then each card following went thinner and thinner so i think when they are spread out it will structurally thick enough to stand up...they are turning out quite nicely...the tiers are covered in fondant and i plan on sticking them into the cake to stand up, would this be ok or would the moisture from the cake ruin the hardness of the playing cards??? any suggestions, should i try to toothpick them in instead maybe?
