Hi, all. I was asked about the fondant bow on this site. And I was wondering how far in advance I can make this bow? I guess I need to know because I wouldn't want it to taste/look bad if I made it too early. Thanks for help! Happy Baking!!

And if anyone might have an easy way to start up a pricing sheet, I would appreciate that, too. I am starting to get calls and want to be better prepared. I am really only used to doing for family and friends. Happy Baking!!

You can make them "way" ahead of time if you choose...like months..just store them at room temp, in an airtight container! Just make sure you make them at least 24 hours in advance of when you need them!

There is something called the pricing matrix, there are a few different versions. I can e-mail it to you, if needed.

You can make the bows way in advance as MrsMissey said. Just make sure that if you are storing them in an airtight container they are completely dry or the moisture will cause them to get soft and droop. I store mine in a rubbermaid type container but it isn't airtight. I still have a few bows left from the wedding I did in November and they are still fine.

Can I get the price matrix too please! swagurl@yahoo.com

Are you using straight-up fondant? I'd recommend some/all gumpaste in there to get it nice and stiff. Like others mentioned, you can make them way in advance if you are storing properly, but for those last-minute cakes, I've had no trouble with making mine the night before, either (though I am making them out of 100% gumpaste...).

This thread is really old. Either pm her or look at the sticky threads under the Business Forum. There is a sticky about pricing matrix. There is no one formula that meets everyone's needs though, so do some research on Pricing here and determine what works best for you. A PITA, but it's a necessary one, kinda like a colonoscopy when you get older.
