I want to make my frienda pooh bear figurine to put on top of a cake. THe problem is she lives about 2 hours away so i wanted to make it about a month ahead of time . So My questions would be what should i use? modeling chocolate? rice krispies? fondant? Would i need to refrige it?
Any suggestions would be great !
in my experience modelling chocolate or paste would be fine made up to a month in advance as long as you store it correctly, i have always been told to store decorations in a card board box away from direct sunlight and this has always worked for me. i made figures recently for a cake 2 weeks in advance and they were fine
thanks wondering if you have any preferred modeling chocolate recipe!
i use belgian chocolate paste to make flowers and fans and they hold up well without the addition of cmc
I would make it out of fondant with a little gum tragacanth powder mixed in...store in an open container (or a closed cardboard box) in a dark cupboard (to avoid fading). Do not refrigerate. It's best if it can dry out as much as possible. Made that way it will be fine stored for a month.
