I often decorate cakes & cupcakes with fondant cutouts so I like to make them ahead of time (1-3 days prior depending on my schedule). What is the best way to store them until I'm ready to use them? I've tried putting them in covered plastic containers but found out that they taste like plastic. Yuk! Should I just lay them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and then loosely cover w/ plastic wrap? I would like to know how others store them.
I also tried to store pieces I've made from candy melts/forms but they tasted like plastic as well after storing in containers. Maybe I should use sealable plastic bags?
Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
I made some a month ahead of the wedding and I just kept them in ziploc bags in a single layer. They did harden a bit, which made them easier to handle, they were still pliable. I did keep them in a drawer until I needed them. Not sure what you are cutting out, mine were applicades for the side of a cake, the cake is the birds nest cake in my pictures, it worked fine.
I do plastic containers.
I have certain ones desginated for cake/ cupcake toppers.
I line with parchment paper and cover with parchment paper and
they don't smell funny.
