I can not find it and I am having trouble with my search, so this is easier. icon_smile.gif
I made gumpaste/fondant, 50/50 flowers. How do I store them? I will be using them at the end of the month. I wasnt sure if I put them in a tupperware container that they would go limp or not. Maybe a card board box?

TIA

Never store these in an airtight container. They'll be destroyed.

Store in a cardboard box away from humidity, heat, and direct light.

Exactly! I have some gumpaste daisies I made in my Wilton courses a few years ago that still look as gorgeous as the day I made them. icon_smile.gif I just keep them in a cake box with tissue.

Good luck!

OK this is the opposite of what our instructor told us. icon_sad.gif I'll have to find something else to put them in. Luckily I've only made 3 and didn't like 2 of them. LOL.

Thanks everyone. I am glad I asked or else I would be looking at crappy flowers the day I needed them. icon_lol.gif
