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.
