I have a wedding this weekend and I am making this ivory bow to go on top. I made the bow pieces out of fondant and they have dried for three days. I went to assemble it today and I used a vanilla frosting mixed with white chocolate as a glue. I figured the frosting wouldn't work alone and the white chocolate was a different color than the fondant, so I mixed them.
It's a big mess! The frosting is clumping and you can see it when you get up close and I don't know how to get a clean look. Not to mention I think it's not going to dry.
Help me, somebody!!

You probably need to get to the store and get some fondant or gum paste or make some candy clay also called modeling chocolate. I'm not sure why you used frosting. I think you just need to start over.

Take a deep breath. I'm sure there's some instructions on this message board somewhere. You'll be fine.
