I'm making Starbuck cups using fondant covered RKT. How far in advance can you make them?

I would think that as long as you aren't planning on having them eaten, you could make them literally weeks ahead. I've never had any go moldy or anything, but they do get hard as rocks after a while. But even that takes some time.

Thanks Karateka, that's what I wanted to know.

I was planning on making them a week or so ahead of time, and I didn't know how the RKT would do underneath.

Not planning on anyone eating them though....

this may be dumb to say, but I did it so I have to share...
If you make them in advance, don't put them in the fridge.

Oh dear, bakery_chick! I'm sure all that hard work, down the drain!!

wverbest, I guess we're not going to get any more info. I alway have been a thread-killer, for some reason!

How long would you let people eat regular rice krispy treats? They don't *really* go bad per say... just get hard and/or stale right? So with the fondant coving them and holding in moisture, I'd think it would be fine to eat them for about a week? I know I ate leftovers of a RKT cake I made for at lest that long. icon_redface.gificon_razz.gifthumbs_up.gif
If it's for pay or something, I'd probably only make it 3 or 4 days in advance... but I'm a stickler for freshness KWIM?
