Would really appreciate any advice on how to dry out 3 large bears by tomorrow morning...eeek! I was told the stuff dries out REALLY fast and was actually worried they would be too brittle, but they are still almost gooey. Tried putting them in the fridge and now wondering if I should try just leaving them out over night. At the moment when I put them on they are leaning backwards and would probably be lying flat after an hour! I even tried a toothpick behind one but her bottom just moulded around it and now she has a builders bum!
HELP PLEASE!
<and a bit of sobbing for good measure>

Feel free to recreate at your leisure wink It is alarmingly easy to do!

I have a bear but sadly no jet, couldnt you make more bears? Do you have time? Idealy with no glass of wine to hand, ha ha.

I hope the bears behaved and didn't disgrace themselves too badly...

I went with the originals - pic up on my profile.
They behaved themselves and had dried slightly more by morning! DD loved it and promptly hand squashed the biggest one with glee when I took them off to cut the cake (so probably just as well it wasn't rock solid!).
Thank you all so much for keeping me sane last night grin flowers

Thank you! DD in bed so I'm finishing off the last of the red from last night, in celebration of the celebration. Phew!

Bother. Can't see profiles on the app. I will look tomorrow.
