if i have a gumpaste piece i did (that has some icing decorations on it too) and i just left it out, how long will it last if it is not going to be used or eaten?
If it is kept reasonably cool at room temp. and avoiding any humidity and sunlight, I'd say it could last many years. My neighbor has her gumpaste flowers from her wedding and that was at least 12 years ago. She keeps hers in her glass curio cabinet.
Just wanted to add another question to this, what about a MMF piece if it doesn't need to be eaten? Same sort of time or is it different because of the marshmallows?
I've kept MMF pieces for months...I've actually got a MMF gun that I made in April and it looks as good as it did when I made it.
Texas: Yeh I actually have some MMF flowers i made in Feb and like your piece they are looking perfectly fine so far
I just wanted to make another one of my pieces i usually make out of gumpaste but i have left over MMF i thought i might use up instead but wasn't going to use it if i can't get a fairly good life span out of it lol
