I am making my daughter's graduation cake and I plan to make the cap and stack of books out of RKT and covering with fondant. My question is how far in advance can I do this and make sure the fondant don't turn icky? I work full time so I am preparing what I can the weekends coming up to the party.

I have made some of my additional pieces to a big project and it's not due until 2 weeks from today. I bought thr RKT from the store (they have the preservatives so it wont go bad like made from scratch with butter) and I used my "glue icing" 2 cups conf. sugar, 1 tbsp shortening, 3 tbsp light corn syrup, small amts of water until thin consistency. Covered with fondant. It will dry a bit but just be sure you've decorated it and it will be fine! I check mine daily and even have pieces I made and didnt use for another project and their still fine. Just store pieces out of direct light and you'll be good to go! Congrats to your daughter graduating!!!! thumbs_up.gif
