Oh please help! Molded fondant to plastic UNWRAPPED cup

post #1 of 90
Thread Starter 
I am about to cry... I molded my cupstacking cups to the cups without wrapping them in plastic wrap.. will they "let go" of the cups after they dry?

I have the oven on warm with door open.. Will that melt them??? Ohhh please help I have spent sooo much time on these.. Due on Friday.. any advice or help welcome!!

Has the fondant dried yet? have you thought about freezing it?

its still not fully dry.. but see I really thought if I stuck it in the oven... with the door open and on warm it might dry them quicker... I don't know.. ya think the freezer might make them unstick? LOL

If my fondant is sticky or the humidity is high, I use the freezer to unmold tappits and hard molds.. they release much easier.... but if the fondant is still soft you will need to transer it to a plastic covered cup as soon as it releases from the freezer... hope that made sense...

Did you use any Crisco on your fondant? I just made some cups but I greased my cups with Crisco and they came off OK. I just let them air dry naturally. Good luck!!

ok, now I understand icon_confused.gif Leave them at least 10 minutes.. you might have to use scissors to cut the cup and help to loosen it...
