How far ahead can I make a person out of fondant?? I am going to be trying to make a golf cake for my dad's 60th birthday party which is next sunday and I wanted to make some of the pieces ahead of time but I am not sure how far ahead I am do that??
I find the further ahead the better. It is just firmer. Just make sure it is posed to go on the cake. no changing it after it dries.
Good luck have a happy holiday
You can make it or them now. You might want to add some gum tex or about 50% gumpaste to the fondant so the figures don't droop. Good luck and have fun making them.
I would say go ahead and make them now especially if you are adding Tylose to the fondant. I've made flowers, etc. weeks in advance and they are fine.
You have plenty of time but I agree the sooner, the better.
Honestly, you can make those things months ahead.
Thank you for all the advise I will get started then
