I've made them days in advance before, and if you need them to be pliable then yes, you do need to put them in an airtight container. I put mine under plastic and then in tupperware just to be sure!

Ok, what if I was to store them until I needed them, would they keep for 1 month say??

fondant keeps for ages, so i wouldnt worry too much! just check ur use by dates. the longer they sit out, the drier they will get, but they will be edible.

I have pearls that are completely dry that I have used after months!

i have also made balls out of fondant, and used them on a cake more than two months after, Hard yes, but not bad.
