I made some fondants flowers & cut-outs for CCs, I will be using some in a couple of days & others in a month
I tried storing them in a plastic container once & they all went mushy icon_cry.gif
So this time I will be storing them in a box
My only problem is that the box I have is a gift box used to store clothes not food... Is that ok or should I look for something else? Keeping in mind that some of them will be staying for a month in that box..

I had made some stargazer lilies and I asked Edna (from the video) how to store them, because some of my petals got soft, I also had them in a plastic container. She told me to make sure they were completely dry and to just put them in a box cushioned with toilet paper, and its been working great. I lined the box with tissue and it supported the fragile petals.

I store them in cardboard egg cartons. I get the 18-egg cartons, put the flowers/cut outs in each little egg holder and close the lid. Some of the flowers are too big for this method, so they get stored in a cake box with tissue stuffed inside and the flowers on top of the tissue. So far have had no issues with any of them.

I just covered mine with tissue, and its working great so far, but I would think it would be fine to put the lid on, my flowers are too large so I didn't. Edna had mentioned that to put them in the tupperware container the flowers had to be completely dry, she said they were better off in a box.
