I cooked them at 275degrees for over an hour some, 30 min. some and they are all comming out the same. I also sprayed them with starch before putting them in the oven, and it didn't help either...If anyone knows why or could give me any advice, I would appriciate it. Thanks.
Are you letting them cool to room temp on the dowel? Also, your ribbon has to be 100% polyester to ensure it is kork-able. What kind of ribbon is this?
