I am doing my first Fondant/Gumpaste figure for my daughters birthday cake. I am new to the whole fondant thing. She has requested a purple dog for the top. I was planning on making that ahead of time to give it a week or so to dry....Problem is I also made some purple fondant daisies a few days ago. I just checked them today and they are no longer purple..they are blue. I had them sitting on my counter uncovered to dry out.

How do I prevent this from happening to my dog??? Should I keep it in a covered container?? Will it dry if I do?? Was planning on making it tonight..the cake is for her party on the 18th. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Avoid any type of light, that would help a bit. There is this specific brand of coloring that will not fade--hopefully someone will chime in and let you know.

just make your dog.. just keep it out of any type of light.. any type... any color will fade if set out in any kind of light.. had lots of experience with it all. so cover things up with paper tower.. litely. and put in dark corner..
