I have a cake that was postponed for a couple of weeks. No biggie - I'm not in business. It's for a friend who's grandmother is turning 80, and I know the party will happen there was just a conflict in schedule with one of the birthday girls daughters. I'm was in the process of making the figure which is the topper when I found out. All I had left was the ears and hair. She is going to be sitting on the top edge of the cake, so she was drying on the edge of an overturned cake pan. Now that she's dried in that position, what's the best way to store her? I can't leave her just sitting out in my kitchen... I need the space, and I don't want her to fade. All my cake boxes are much larger than just her which is OK, I guess, I'd have to find a good hiding spot so my toddler doesn't find the box. But should I leave her on the overturned pan and put wadded up paper towels or tissue around her to take up the rest of the space in the box?

Thanks for any advice.

Store her in a dry place out of direct sunlight and she will be fine. I store mine in my china cabinet. There is much less dust and no one will bump it. You can cover her with an overturned tupperware or large cup as well.

I didn't think of that - no one ever goes in the dining room unless it's Thanksgiving or Christmas. Thanks!

Put her in a clean cardboard box on some soft foam, and store in a clean dry place...she'll stay as perfect as she already is!
