I am making an MMF bow for my daughter's b'day cake and we've had rain for the past 15 days and the loops wont dry. I need them dry by tomorrow, I don't have a food dehydrator, so is there nother way? Thank you
did you add some tylose or something else to help harden them?? if you need them for tomorrow I would make new ones out of gumpaste roll really thin and they should dry Or add a heap of tylose to your mmf and agin roll as thin as you can thesy should dry
Yes GP!!! I nearly ALWAYS make mine out of gp anymore... they don't break and they dry quickly... I sure hope you have some my dear...
I'm afraid you might not get yours dry in time
thanks for your replies, I appreciate it problem is I don't have gumpaste and I can't make any at the moment. A friend suggested I try the oven. So I turned it onto the lowest setting, and I've put the loops on some paper laying them on the oven door, which is obviously open, and it's working! YAY! I just hope it doesn't take all night lol
You have the oven ON or the light on?????
oven is on, light is busted lol
Tania I haven't ever dried MMF with the oven on.. just the light.. I hope you aren't having any problems
There were no problems I can happily make the bow to put on the cake today thank goodness.
I left the oven door open and put the loops on the door so I think that helped. Thank you for your help, next time I'll use gum paste.
Did your loops hold their shape? I've had hardened MMF pieces reabsorb moisture in rainy weather.
Yes they held their shape, only one loop broke and my daughter absolutely loved the cake, so that was wonderful
