EMERGENCY HELP NEEDED! FONDANT WON'T HARDEN - Page 2

post #16 of 20
It's been mentioned here before also to just use a fan on the highest you can without blowing away your pieces because it is the air circulation that dries them (ie: evaporates the moisture).

I've added the gumtex and used the fan to dry pieces. Both methods work well. I just recently mixed a 50% MMF/ 50% gumpaste, and loved it. It dried fast, and kept the shape. It was so quick.

Never tried the oven though.....still kinda scared with that method icon_razz.gif

DON"T PUT MMF IN THE OVEN! It does not have the same drying effect that it does if you put storebought fondant in the oven! The marshmallows will only soften , and expand. I'm not sure how to get them to dry quickly, but I put some practice pieces in the oven once just to see what happens, and it was awful!

Yep - figured that out real quick! So from now on it's 50/50! Thanks for all the help I learn so much from you guys! BTW-I made a tag out of cardboard off my printer (since mine melted in the oven-it was MMF not storebought-oops)...anyway she loved the cake and I'm smarter now thru the learn-by-error-process!
Just have fun - It's the icing on the cake!

I use of my food dehydrater to dry out fondant. I had to break out the center of one of the trays so that it would have a bigger space to fit in larger items because the trays are very thin. It works great and it makes use of a kitchen item I rarely if ever used before. icon_biggrin.gif
