I definitley wouldn't put fondant or gumpaste in the fridge as it will absorb moisture and make it sag more. I usually put my 'creations' in the hot water cupboard or airing cupboard where it is dry and warm. You could try adding some gum trac to your fondant to make it harden up.

You can also add some gum tragacanth to your fondant to give it extra strength!
When I make decorations that need to STAND UP, I make sure to add some gum trag.

I think Wilton make it, otherwise your cake decorating supply shop will have it if you ask for it.
