I made some gumpaste roses for my sister's wedding cake. The wedding is not until October 22. Can I dust the flowers with luster and color dust now or would it be better to wait until closer to the wedding?
Thanks,
Erin

Hi, you can go ahead and dust them and have that behind you.

In addition to what Icer said...also make sure they are not in direct line of either florescent light or natural light So the color don't fade before the big day

I understand that steaming your flowers "set" the colors.
