I decided to attempt curlicues for the first time. I had already used up all my gumpaste on my bow so I had to make the curls out of MMF. I set them on the dowels and left them in front of a fan over night to help dry but they aren't hardening fast enough. I've read about putting them in the oven with the light on but I'm worried my MMF will just get softer or melt. I need to finish decorating this cake this afternoon so I need a quick solution. Some help would be great!!
AI don't think mmf ever dries hard enough to hold a shape like that... I don't use it though so I could be wrong.
I once dried colored bow loops in a 250 degree oven for a few minutes (can't remember exactly how long).
I placed them on parchment paper, and they did end up rock hard...except the red ones, they all melted.
ATry adding some tylose to the mmf.
