I always use Wilton's Fondant to make a bow. I've got some satin ice that I'm thinking of using. I'm just wondering how well the loops dry? Anybody have experience using it for a bow? How long did it take to dry?

I have used it before to make things and it worked fine. I now use their gumpaste to make things now though, and you get a lot for not a lot of $$$

just made a bow yesterday. the loops were fine. i put a little piece of balled up plastic wrap to help them keep their shape while they dried. didn't take long. you could put a little tylose in the fondant to help it dry fast.

I normally use a 50/50 mixture of Satin Ice fondant and gumpaste. That way it tastes good but dries quickly and seems to hold up better.

I use satin ice mixed with gumpaste for my loop bows. I also dry them on a 3/4 inch dowel so they keep there shape

I also use Satin Ice gumpaste and I love it. Works well. I've also used Wilton fondant and added some tylose and that worked okay also.
