I have made little shoes, flowers and a cross for a Christening cake due next weekend so I do have some time to salvage!!
The problem is anything that I have coloured (very delicate shade of pink) is just not drying!! The white flowers seem to be fine just a bit sticky! We have had a lot of rain and I don't have air-conditioning or a sealed room. The shoes are holding up surprisingly but are very slimy!!!! My flowers were nicely shaped and now they are a slippery mess!!
I am happy to start again with the flowers but want to avoid same thing happening - and def don't want to remake the shoes - any ideas?!
What did you use to make them? Fondant? Gum Paste? And when did you make them?
I made them in modelling paste - ready made stuff - but they are bahaving more like i made them from fondant!! I made them 3 days ago!
I have had this problem before, the rain has been rather excessive this past year here in QLD.
I actually put my pieces in the oven on fifty degrees for five minute and once they have cooled will dry nicely , the other thing I do is get one of those closet camels or hippos and pop them in a box with the items you want dry. a styrofoam box is great for this if you can get one . but cardboard will do in a pinch.
Try putting them in a shoe box with several silicon packets.
I have had them in with silica packets and a hippo thing for a few days and they seem to be drying well! Phew! The rain has also stopped so hopefully won't end up in cake disasters after all!
