My son is graduating this June and my wife and I are going to do a grad cake and cupcakes. I figured to make my own cupcake decorations by using royal icing and candy molds (shaped like rolled up diplomas and mortar board hats). That was on Sunday. As of the writing of this question, they have not solidified, still very gooey.
Any idea if, first I shouldn't use royal icing with candy mold and/or second, how to get them to dry faster.
If you have some fondant handy, you could easily make diplomas. I seen Reese's PB cups used for the cap with a 50/50 blend top of the hat. Just another idea if this doesn't come together.
Oh well, guess I'll have to trash the RI and use fondant. The main reason for using RI was the taste vs fondant.
Should I corn starch the molds before I press the fondant into them?
