Hey I am currently trying to make a wine bottle and I half wrapped a bottle of wine with fondant with the intention of slipping it off once dry.
I have now painted the fondant and 10 hours later I have awoken to extremely soft fondant over the wine bottle.

How can I speed up the drying process? I need this for tomorrow and still have all the labels to do icon_cry.gif please someone help!!

Hi. I know it's too late but I just saw this post. I would have made the bottle with gumpaste & painted it when it dried.

Can you get a hold of a product called tylose or gum tragacanth??? Thats your only bet and even with those unfortunately they still need a good few days to dry solid enough to be able to paint over them as well as retain shape.

Fondant alone simply wont dry hard enough...
Also, putting it in the freezer will only harden it temporarily.
