Good Way To Store Fondant Decorations So They Stay Soft?

I want to make a bunch of fondant decorations ahead of time but I'd like them to stay soft enough to be pliable to go on the edges of a round cake.

I tried storing some once in an airtight rubbermaid container with a lid but they got a little gummy. I also tried placing some on a cookie sheet and covering it with saran wrap but then they got marks on them from the plastic wrap.

Does anyone have a good way to do this?

I don't have an answer for you but I have the same question. So maybe this will give you a bump.

I do the airtight container thing, but just vent the container a bit. If it's mostly closed but not completely sealed (or say, you tape plastic wrap on top but poke a few small holes in) it won't get gummy yet will still stay soft. Just did this with about 35 fondant sea creature decorations, and it worked out great!

Thanks. I thought about doing that but didn't know if they would dry out.

I'm glad to know it works, I'm going to try it, thanks again!
