I am making a purse cake for my daughter for her b-day next weekend. I just made the make up and high heel shoe out of gum paste. I painted them and now I need to know how to store them. Can I leave them sit out until next Sunday or do I need to store them in container, or refridgerator. Can you tell I am new at this??? THanks for you help!!! icon_smile.gif

Welcome to CC!
Gumpaste mustn't be stored in the fridge. In a box to protect them is best.

Ok, I'm really not an expert, but I think you need to leave them out in the air to dry until they're really hard. Then you can cover them. It doesn't need to be airtight packaging - in fact perhaps it's better not to be...
