I made a onesie and some buttons a year ago that was never used. I had wrapped them up but never put them in the freezer. Do you think it's still usable or should I just make new ones?

Thank you!

Just wondering if anyone might be able to help since I have to make the cake tonight. It would help if I didn't have to redo the onesie but if it's a health issue to use the old ones although wrapped very well, I will certainly redo them.

Depends if you're selling it or is it for friends/fam? Are they going to eat it?

If it's just deco and not for retail, and it looks good, I'd say you could use it, but if it's on something you're being paid for (unless it looks really good and they're NOT eating it), I wouldn't use it.

It may look & smell good but can have a dusty taste. How was it wrapped? Plastic wrap? I've kept some but like I said, after awhile they take on a dusty tasteicon_sad.gif

Thank you for your responses. I ended up making some new ones since the old ones were a little faded icon_sad.gif perhaps I didn't wrap them well enough or they were simply too old. Fortunately it didn't take long at all.
