I recently made a gorgeous fondant show cake. I want to preserve it and use it again at other shows. How do I do that? Last time I made a fondant show cake I brought it home and it dried out and looked aged. Thoughts for me? Thanks!

Honestly I don't do anything to preserve mine. I've had some for years. They may get a wee bit more ivory , but that's fine.

I just stick mine in a cardboard box , so it doesn't get dusty and add some silica gel packets to absorb moisture, I live near the beach so it is quite humid here. I have had some cakes for years and I find they keep great.

These are cake dummies.
