I have a cake due in a couple of hours here, and one of my accessory pieces (a cell phone, about 4 inches by 5 inches) is not even close to dry enough to use. Any suggestions? I don't need it to be rock hard, but I need the one part of the cell to stand up straight. Thanks!
Anytime I make accessories for a cake, I use either 50/50 gumpaste/fondant mix or straight gumpaste and to speed up the drying time I put it on a plate or pan in the oven with just the light on. It speeds up the drying quite a bit, but in just a few hours I'm not sure. Maybe someone else has a better way, but that's mine...hope it helps!
