I was going to make a tom & Jerry cake. I wanted to use Styrofoam for Toms head. The cake is for Jan 31st. My question is can I make Toms head now ((3 weeks ahead)) without the mmf getting too drying & cracking off?

Yes. I have dummy cakes that have been sitting for 2 years and the fondant has not dried out or cracked

No, I just spritz them with a bit of water. Piping gel is sooooo messy and sticky.

Yeah, I always try to make what ever I possibly can as far a head of time as possible (I always get running behind) so we always have various fondand/gumpaste doohickeys in all stages of completion around. If it didn't keep I'd be in a world of hurt, my caking career would be finished.
