I hand painted some rolled out fondant as decorations for a cake. They dried out in the process. I attempted to bend a sample one slightly to test if it would bend to the shape of the cake and it cracked in half.

Is there any way to save them? I was thinking to maybe let them sit on a moist paper towel over night and cover them. Does anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks for helping a noob over her head icon_smile.gif

Ummmm......I know that you can put an apple slice or two in a closed container with dry cookies (not crispy ones, but ones that were intended to be soft/chewy) and they will soften up. Maybe you could try that with the dry fondant pieces.

I have read, that if you want your fondant decorations to be soft, they should be kept in a close plastic container, this way they can be soft and flexible. I also have notice that if you put dry fondant decoration in a close container, they will become somewhat soft.
