HELP! How do I get fondant figures to dry quickly??

post #1 of 9

It's been 3 days and they're still EXTREMELY soft and I don't have time to do them over.

TIA!

Yeah. There's not a lot you can do about it now. You may also try some Tylose powder in it next time. One teaspoon per 12 ounces of fondant. Works like a charm.

next time you make your fondant, add some gumtex. helps it dry faster. I'm not sure what you can do now about your existing figures that won't dry, sorry!

I use Tylose too, just dump some in while you knead it...

The best I can say now is warm the oven up a little bit and then lay the pieces on the rack and crack it open to let a draft and that usually helps a little bit. You have to make sure the piece has air circulation on both sides.

Good luck!

I use 50/50 mix (gum paste & fondant) and they dry very quick...I'm sorry but i don't know of anything that will help with your figures

Yeah I'm not really sure what happened this time. Maybe I didn't have enough ps in the mix. I'll definitely try the tylose of gumpaste next time.

Thanks everyone! As of now I just got the fan blowing on them!

Aside fron mixing with gum-tex or gum paste, which doesn't help you now, I also put mine on a porous, surface such as a sponge, to get air circulating all around. Then I put a fan on it to help it to dry.
Good Luck!!

Turn the light on in your oven (no heat) and put them in there.

I haven't tried that myself - but several people have recommended it.

You can also put them right under a desk lamp (bend its head to shine right onto your figures). The heat generated by the bulb will dry them quicker.
