When you make them ahead of time?

I need to make one for the top of a cake, it'llbe laying flat on the cake. If I make it this weeken, how should I store it for the next 2 weeks until I use it?

put the dryed pieces on a piece of styrofoam and then put them in a cardboard cake box. Don't put them in plastic or they will soften up.

Yeah I've alwasys been told to keep in a box like a shoe box in a cool dry spot and they will last for a really long time.

the pieces I practice with (not intending to be eaten) just sit on a tray on a shelf, and they're fine. some of them have been there months and months, they're still perfect. Obviously if you intended to eat them you'd be more careful of bugs and things potentially landing on them, definitely a cardboard box, plastic makes them kinda melt.

I like a card board box myself. It protects them for dust and stuff but still lets them breathe and finish drying out. The one time I put something in a plastic air tight container, the little black spots I used for eyes and eyebrows bleed and spread.
