I made some rings and letters and a crown last night.. with hopes they would dry overnight and be strong enough to stand up. Well with hurricane on the way and a storm that rolled thru, it did not dry AT ALL! Despite being out for 12 hours uncovered! I have less than 12 hours before the cupcakes are due... and I need them to dry. Humidity is better but not awesome. Any suggestions on how I can get them to dry out so they will stand up????

Thank you

You can try putting them in the oven with ONLY the light on - no heat. Also try putting them in a clean environment with a fan blowing on the fondant lightly. Hope this helps!

Did u mix them with gumpaste.. From what I understand fondant takes longer to dry out by itself.. I don't know if it ever gets real hard either..

Since you already made them try rpaige's suggestion. Good Luck!

In the future if you want them rock hard gumpaste is your best bet. You can also do 50/50 fondant and gumpaste however it won't dry as hard as gumpaste would. I know from plenty of bad experiences! icon_smile.gif
