I made some valentine bouquets for my sister's teachers and they have to be delivered tomorrow morning. It's been over 24 hours since I the put the base coat on these ones and they aren't dry AT ALL...the top looks a little dry but it is just mush inside...not even the slightest bit firm yet. everything else was dry a long time ago and is already detailed and packaged. I do'nt know what the problem is. I'm thinking it must be the is a really dark black. maybe I put too much coloring or too much cocoa powder or something...i don't know!!! I dont think these are going to be dry by morning. they didn't seem any different today than when I went to bed last night. is there anything I can do to speed it up? would it ruin them if I put them in a really low oven for a few minutes? I'm not that worried about it drying out the cookie...that wouldn't be as bad as not having them at all.

thanks so much for your help!!!

I had the same problem yesterday. I was using royal icing and I put them in the fridge which worked for me.

I have a little fan (the one you buy at disney world with the water bottle on the bottom) that i use alot to speed up the drying. Ive used it for fondont and colorflow pieces.
