I've made MM fondant before and covered a cake with it, but this time I need to make a bow and mickey mouse ears. I picked up Wilton fondant today to keep me from having to make black. My question there anything "special" I need to do to the fondant to make it dry and how long will it take? My plan is make two ears that will stick down into the top of the cake, and place a small bow between them.

if you make it out of 100% fondant, it will take a long time to dry. mixing fondant with gumpaste (or just using gumpaste alone) or adding tylose will help it dry faster and stronger. fondant on its own will be fine tho, just make it well in advance.
ad for the ears, maybe stick in some cocktail sticks so they are easy to put in the cake.

Thanks. I was wondering I needed to add gumpaste to it. I don't need it until a week from Saturday. I better get busy. I hadn't even thought of adding little sticks to the ears. Great idea! icon_smile.gif

For the mini mouse cake in my pics I "glued" fondant circles over cardboard circles that had skewers inserted into them for the ears. I also made the bow only a day before the event and it was fine. I used MMF for both... let me know if I can help in any way.
