Is there a way to get a gumpaste high heeled shoe to dry quickly? I just got an order for a shower cake 2 days away, and I don't know if this is possible. Thanks for any help!

Set it in front of a fan...that is the best way to do it IMO - air movement!

I leave mine in the oven with the light on. Last week I needed to quickly dry some gumpaste flowers but I was using the oven so I put them in my car (it was 100 that day) and they dried right out! icon_smile.gif

I always free mine from whatever is molding them - flower formers, whatever - as soon as I can so the air can get all around them. They stay wetter where they are touching something.
