Made my 1st wedding cake and they loved it but they want to keep the figures. These are made from fondant mixed with cmc.
I know you can keep them in a cardboard box however they want to keep them in a glass box.
Will they keep ok? Will they go soft if no air gets to them?
They want them on display, best way?

If you put them in a airthight box, then just make sure there is a packet of that gel stuff that comes in leather purses or the pockets of leather jackets. That will absorb any moisture in the box.

The gel is called silica gel. Another suggestion is not to display their figures in direct sunlight. The sunlight will fade the colors. Believe it or not I still have my toybox cake that I made about 1 1/2 years ago for a competition. (I just can't bring myself to throw it out) I keep it in a dark room with a cotton cloth over it, and it looks almost as good as it did when it was first made. I displayed some other figures that I had made on a kitchen shelf for about a year. They stayed nice, but finally faded.
