It's a little to late for this, but in the future mix in some gumpaste or tylose powder.

I made the 1st one 50/50 gumpaste and fondant. I tossed it when I broke it!
Do you think I should make something else for the raffle? Call it a lesson learned and make another cake?

How about putting it in your oven with just the light bulb that lights the oven on. I've heard that will give off a little heat. Maybe enough to dry the fondant. If only you had added a little gumpaste it would dry more quickly. Any change you can redo?

I would use a little fan pointed directly on it ON HIGH! Things that are still dusted with corn starch dry much faster for me and I just brush it off later. If you can get air under and around it it will dry faster. Parchment paper will alow air to move more where wax paper will not. If it wouldn't stick I would even go as far as placing it on a peice of foam or a washcloth to help with air flow under it.
I wouldn't do the oven thing it needs more air to absorb the moisture from it. An oven is mostly sealed with vents and dosn't get good air flow.

Put your cake under the air condition vent and lower the air so it keeps blowing on it.

yeah lowering your AC temp will help suck out more moisture in the air.
