I made 50/50 gumpaste/fondant flowers for my DD birthday cake. I made way to many and was thinking that if I could save the extras to make cupcakes in a few days. They are in an airtight container but can I leave them on the counter, or do I need to refrigerate or freeze?

For just a few days.....a week........they should be fine in there.
Check them.....since you used 50/50 airtight might not be great if they didn't dry completely 1st.
If they have softened, let the airdry then store in a dark, cool place uncovered.

I place mine in an egg carten, it holdes them seperatly helps keep the shape, and can be closed to cover and keep dust and light away. also since it is not air tight the humidity (Ilive in the south) can not make them get soggy and wilty.

I store mine in egg cartons, labeled, and then on a shelf.
