I made some kitties for my daughter's cake for next Saturday. How do I store them? Thank you!

Just put them in tin with a lid to keep the dust out, in a cool dry place away from light to stop the colours from fading. NEVER store in an airtight container!!

I made a sleeping beauty 3 years ago ( ) .
I keep it on the cupboard just "sleeping" in a plate. No covering no nothing... But it is true that the light is not too strong in that room.

I have a little lamb in my kids' room shelf. It's a little dusty by now icon_smile.gif. But it's quite well after a year...

Anamado, that Sleeping Beauty is gorgeous. I would keep that too.

Thank you everyone. I have them in the butler's pantry on wax paper on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Sure hope I can figure out a way to keep their heads on.

I always put some wax paper on a plate, stand my figures on that, and then turn a plastic bowl upside-down to cover them. If you cannot find a dark corner to put the plate, you might want to use a metal bowl to keep the light out. I agree that you need to avoid airtight storage.

Place a small piece of dry spaghetti into the base of the head and insert that into the body. seal the join with a little tylos glue for extra support. that should keep the heads on.
