I want to premake my beads in the silicne beadmaker? Will they fall apart? I wast to assemble the top tier their. CAn I do this?
if you make them in advance, they will dry in the position that you set them in. if you'd like to move it around later, that may not be possible without breakage.
Keep them in an airtight container and they shouldn't harden too much. Are you planning to use the strand as the bottom border? If so, and the strand breaks, no big deal. Just apply the pieces.
If you choose to keep them airtight, make them no more than a day ahead as the moisture in the airtight container may cause the fondant to go a little funky.
I've made them a day or so early and put them in a resealable plastic bag to keep them from drying out before I was ready to use 'em. Haven't tried to make them way in advance.
thanks dianelm! very helpful.
Thanks everyone I will do that
