I am trying to get my fondant harden and even after adding gumpaste to it it is not getting hard. What can I do to harden it? Any ideas????

Add tylose powder to the fondant. If you need a already made item to dry quicker, put fan on or under it.

You can turn your oven on to 100 degrees or so and put your fondant/gumpaste decorations in there. It will dry it out much quicker than letting it sit out.

Thank You very much. I have the pieces made already twice with adding more gumpaste each time, so I will try the oven.

I just place mine in the oven with the oven light on.
