I am making tiger paws and was wondering if I could make them today and use them Wednesday night to decorate a cake with BC frosting for Thursday. Also I want to know how to make my fondant red roses look like they have water drops on them?

YES< you can make that ahead of time..but if its mmf,,add tylose powder because that fondant takes forever to set up hard..unless you use gumpaste or a higher ratio shortening fondant. Roses: add piping gel drops on rose..that is the only solution I can think of on that. I know piping gel has a glassy, water look.
Good luck and post ur pic when finished!
