I have a cake due in a few hours but I don't have any gumpaste flowers or decorations and I obviously don't have the time for them to dry if I make something now. please help with ideas of decorations that don't need to dry?


The cake is for my godmother and she's allowing me to pic whatever style I want but the colors should be pink green and white.

Use modeling chocolate.  As soon as you make whatever decoration all you need to do is pop it in the freezer for 5 minutes and it will hold it's shape.

Thanks fromscratch but I've never used modeling chocolate so I don't have any. All I have right now is buttercream.

It's probably too late for you now, but some of my favorite last minute designs are covering the cake in buttercream rosettes and candle cakes. Both are quick and easy and last minute fondant decorations that don't require drying time can be used. For the rosette cake, I've added little ribbon roses and butter cream leaves. For the candle cake, since it was winter time, I added holly leaves and berries around the base. I will also say, so being the quickest and easiest designs, they got the most rave reviews.
