So I've got a couple of cakes this week that will have some royal icing decorations and one with fondant cutouts that need to be pretty solid. I can go ahead and work on them today, but it is a precarious thing to have anything sitting out to dry for days with my two toddlers running around and no vehicle to go anywhere. So I was thinking maybe I could wait until closer to date, use tylose in the fondant, and maybe stick them in my oven on my dehydrate setting for a few hours or more. It's basically a very low temp with the convection fan running to keep things nice and dry. Do you think this would work? I didn't know if the heat (i can turn as low as 105) would have the opposite effect and make it softer. Opinions?
