I am making some NFSC snowflakes decorated with fondant and royal icing (Antonia's) for a function next week.

Any idea how long these will keep? Can I also make some now for Christmas, and package them, or is it too early?

I have made these a few times and I have made mine a week in advance and they have been fine. I have stored them in airtight containers or sometimes they have been individually packed in a cellophane bag.

I believe you can also freeze them - however I have not tried this.

Hi Martha. I make NFSC with MMF all the time. As lucia says, they will last several days if they are either individually wrapped or layered between wax paper and stored in an air tight container. Yes, you can make and decorate them now and freeze for Christmas, again both ways. Just take them out of the freezer and let them sit in the container on the counter. I have kept them frozen for a month and they look and taste as good as if I had just done them. I am going to start my Christmas cookie baking on Monday icon_biggrin.gif

Linedancer and Lucia - thanks for your responses. I am going to try and freeze some of them and see what happens! Thanks again.
