When making things like crowns and baby shoes, how do you get the fondant and/or gumpaste to harden enough that it wont fall over? PLEASE help me icon_smile.gif

Gumpaste alone will harden enough to crack a tooth! Even a 50/50 mix of gumpaste and fondant will harden very well. I'm not too sure about fondant alone, though. I think it's too soft.

Add Gum Tragacanth or CMC.
CMC is instant and Gum Trag works overnight.
