I have a cake with matching cupcakes to make for this weekend. Since I work full-time, I'm starting early. I'm planning on making about 50 (very small) fondant bumble bees. My question is: Can I leave these stored at room tempurature, or do I need to refrigerate them? I'm hoping to make about 10 or so each night so I don't have SO much to do this weekend....

Just leave them at room temp, no need to refrigerate. I always do my fondant figures ahead of time and let them dry. If you need them to stay somewhat soft, you can store them in zip lock bags or tupperware containers.

If you put them in the fridge, they are likely to sweat. There should be no change to them if you leave them out. They will harden up but not so much if you wrap them as well as possible and put in an air-tight container. Also most people probably won't eat them so it wouldn't be a too bad if they were hard.
