You can make them now. They need time to harden anyway

Yes, do them now and keep them in a dark place to avoid fading.

Would that be the same for fondant also? Does fondant fade also if not in a dark place? Thanks !

Yes fondant does fade. For minimal fading, store them in a dark place. There are special gel colors that won't fade.
