So your oven pilot is pretty toasty huh. I've got three thermometers in my warming drawer --should have some temps for us shortly. I used to know the temps but my brain is low on ram so I deleted that factoid.

I add cornstarch to my fondant--it is great because it is cheap, it dries great like for bows & stuff--two hours and done.

Maybe yours would work better if you prop the oven door open some or stick a fan in there. Or leave the door open all together.

I mean if you mean never dried out like at all then maybe your recipie needs tweaking. I use ck gumpaste mix --that stuff dries fast--it dries as I'm using it. So however exactly you meant 'never dried out' that's a problem with your formula. I mean even the melted stuff eventually shoulda hardened up.

Oh yes they eventually did... I took them out of that oven and put them in a dehydrator and they did fine .. I use SI gp which I haven't ever had a problem.. and if I have to make it out of fondant I use the SI fondant

You have several kidlettes--you are very busy!

I will admit it is a blessed luxury to be able make bows in two hours.

Kind of a trade off with the cake gods. I can't be legal in my county but I can make bows fast. Hmm, wonder if I could negotiate a little...y'know what I mean I'd wait three hours for a bow to dry if I could get licensed!! icon_lol.gif Hey four even--overnight, man knock yourself out, cakegods. So I can make a real fast bow for every one of my no customers. icon_mad.gif Buht I'm nohhht bittehhhr.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is one hundred twenty five degrees in my warming drawer on low. And this temp is safe for all of my gum paste, fondant and other random concoctions.

I put my gimpast/fondant flowers out in my hot car. I then came in and began reading about this thread. I quickly went out to my car and took them out. Now they are in my oven with the light on. Boy am I glad I read this. You folks said the stuff could melt in high heat.
