I'm in the process of doing my first fondant cake, The flowers look really good. When I decide what kind of cake to use, it will be presented to my family. The flowers were done on tooth picks, can I remove the flower before cutting the cake and save them for another cake? icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif Or if my family chooses, can they eat them? I don't think they will be eaten!!!! What a waste if you can't eat the whole cake icon_rolleyes.gif Do you throw your fondant flower away???? icon_redface.gif After they have been used on a cake that is....I really need your honest info, fello CC'ers. Thanks

As usual, it depends. Fondant flowers can be edible. With toothpicks, there is a possible safety issue, so you need them to be careful.

Yes, they can be used over, provided they are still in good condition.

You can save them in a covered box-NOT air tight. They will continue to dry, but you have to protect them from dust and light. Fondant can fade.

I'd hope that no one ate them (because I hate making them icon_redface.gif ) and totally use them again. icon_biggrin.gif

Like Joannb said, store them in a box, out of light.

Good Luck!

The problem with using them again, and again is the time w/come when you make a cake for someone slse outside family and forget to make new ones.
*IF* you are positive they will not be given to anyone outside family yes, by all means you can use them many times. They will keep up to 6 months if not exposed to heat or moisture.

icon_surprised.gif Boy, am I glad you all gave me the scoop on the flowers! It takes awhile to make the fondant flower and to pretty to toss. I will make sure everyone knows about the tooth pick.I'm not too sure about fondant ($$$), I really love the taste of buttercream..Thanks again, Peggy
