I am new to the cake decorating and I am doing a simple castle. The colulmns are covered in fondant. How far in advance can I cover the pieces and how do I store them once I do? The party is Saturday afternoon. Not much time in the morning to complete the whole thing.

You can definitely cover the columns now. Just find a safe place to store them. Maybe a box small box for each one so they can't bang around and leave marks on the fondant.

Great news! What about covering the cakes with the fondant. How far in advance can I do that and how do I store it?

OH, and do I paint the shiny dust on them now or the day of the party? Also, what will keep them from getting dry and possibly cracking? I did a test rose and while it hardened beautifully, it looks dry and is indeed cracking a bit.
