Has anyone used the Wilton "Shape 'n Amaze" yet? I am going to use it to make a bow and a few pine branches for a cake topper and was wondering if anyone knew how much drying time it requires? I need it for a cake the weekend before Christmas. Thanks!
i put items in my warming drawer to dry out for a few hours, i use cornstarch in my fondant and the least amount of time is about two hours--if your dough is made right and you are air drying you need overnight -- two days max -- however you can certainly make those pieces now if you want--just keep them out of direct light -- no problem --
AOk. Thank You so much!
AI had never heard of this Shape-N-Amaze stuff so I looked it up.
Seriously? Only Wilton could come up with such a dumb name for modeling paste!
AI got a couple packs for free, so tried it out. I made a shoe with it, took about 72 hours to completely dry. It feels and handles like plasticine. Just don't make the mistake of tasting it.
LOL! My sister-in-law made our nephew an Angry Bird cake with Shape 'n Amaze as the beak and I had to try it because I'm curious. It was very blah.
AYea I stumbled on it a few days ago online otherwise hadn't heard of it either. I don't plan to taste it haha. It's just for a family cake. Wanted to try it out. I made two different bows with some red and it handles nicely enough I thought. I normally make my own sugar paste and was curious. :)
