I am wanting to make little lady bugs for a cake but they don't seem to be going hard.
I have coloured my fondant (black and red) and then added the tylos. When I let them dry (not covered) they went hard, but when I put them in a container to store, they went soft again.
What can I do to ensure they stay hard rather than going soft once put in a container?
Never put finished gum paste or fondant decorations in a sealed plastic container, as they will go soft and then grow mold, etc.
Completed items need to be stored in a cardboard box away from direct heat & light in a dry environment.
I them in the oven (turned off of course) with the light on for a couple of days to dry. Helps speed things up.
