They will stay hard. If you can, make them soon so that they're completely dry when they go on the cake.

It sounds like a really cute idea!

Thanks Texas_ Rose the reason im asking one time i did some letters out of 50/50 and had them on toothpicks sticking out of the cake to spell happy birthday, and they got really limp like slimmy. But i had wrapped the cake box in saran Wrap to keep the cake fresh, thank goodness i had extra letters to redo them i didnt know what had happend icon_surprised.gif

Dont wrap your box with wrap - let the air get to it - the moisture from the BC with cause your fondant pieces to go limp and dont worry - it will stay fresh the little time its left out icon_wink.gif Good Luck - sounds delicious and adorable!

I do - then just a TINY wiping of water to the back of the pieces to stick it on (or BC - whichever you prefer) .. Good Luck!
