Hi fellow CC's..... I your help. Does anyone know if there is a way to "QUICKLY" dry gumpaste? I made my loops and hung them on Tuesday, yesterday I put the bow together, but my loops are still somewhat soft. HELP... the cake is due tomorrow morning and I don't know that it's going to hold up.
i've heard you can put them in a cold oven with just the light on, but i'm not sure how long that takes to dry.
You can also use a food dehydrator if you know someone who has one. The aren't very expensive. I saw them at Walmart for about $35
yes, put them in the oven, and put on the light....it should dry pretty quickly, as in overnight.....
i guess you can try using the 'cool' setting on your hair dryer
even better if you can borrow a large hooded dryer like the ones in a salon but portable
you can put the gumpaste accents under there and leave it for an extended period
I always place my fondant pieces in the oven to dry faster. I preheat my oven and then once it is preheated I turn it off and place my gumpaste things on a cookie sheet line with wax paper and turn the oven light on. I saw how to do this in a thread from here at CC it works great when you need items to dry quickly. Hope that helps
