i made an apple out of color flow and it shattered and now i need an apple for this cake this afternoon. can i somehow make it out of fondant and get it to harden really fast so it can stand up? can i bake it or something? help. i have a empty spot on my cake now without the apple and it can't lay flat, it needs to stand up.

I would go for using pure gumpaste it will be hard enough to use within an hour or less, but you'd have to make sure no one ate it!

You can also add some tylose to it, keep it in a room with low humidity, and put a fan on it.

If none of those are options for you at the moment, I've done last minute fondant decorations that were secured to "stand" with a discreet lollipop stick or toothpick to hold it in place.
