Pls, help! I needed my decorations to dry fast so I put them in oven with the light on and this morning I find that I can not peel them off icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif and i do not know why? What can I do to get my nice cake decorations? The cake is for this evening! icon_cry.gif How can I prevent this from happening again?

Thank you for your help!

What kind of decorations are they?

Is it royal icing? If so, you can very gently run the wax paper on the edge of the counter. You may need to do this on all sides of the wax paper to fully get it off. I wish there was a better way to explain it in writing.

And next time use parchment paper.

I am sorry, they are gumpaste, and I do not have anymore GP. I have Tylose to put on fondant...? I also made royal icing to glue them but do not think is working. Second time using royal icing as glue.
Thank you for Helping!

I use melted chocolate for glue...........dependable, quick to set, and works on both gumpaste and fondant.

I always use parchment under fondant/gumpaste decorations and also under RI or aluminum foil. Take just a little water and try wetting it slightly and it should come off.

I'm sorry this happened. I put a light coating of crisco(vegetable shortening) on my waxed paper before I put any decorations on it. I learned the hard way just like you.

I never though about putting something on the wax paper, since it never sticks to the cake icon_redface.gif thank you for all your help! KatsSuiteCakes ... on the melted chocolate, is it any kind? Can I use the one that they sell on the supermarket for baking? I have that at this moment.

Thank you all! icon_biggrin.gif

I never use the oven, I put a fan on the pieces.

I also put them next to a fan on parchment paper.

Any chocolate will work...........I use white chocolate on lighter items, and milk/dark for others. I buys morsels at the Dollar Tree, and they work perfect for this. I apply the chocolate with a small paintbrush.

Parchment paper for royal icing - always. Works great!
