I'm doing a few local craft shows and will be selling fondant cupcake toppers and simple gumpaste flowers. I see on websites that sell them they always say they come packaged in an airtight container in which they can be stored for up to a year?!

What is the best way to do this? I'm looking for a simple, pretty, inexpensive package that I can buy locally (A.C. Moore, Michaels, Hobby Lobby).

I've never had to pk'ag any of mine in anything. Maybe if it is humid where you are wrap them in plastic wrap on a cake board?

Definitely not humid. It was snowing today lol. I don't want them to go soft in an airtight container. But I also want them to last for awhile. I was thinking candy boxes?

And also avoid breakage...

If the decorations are small, you can put them in a nut and candy paper. If you don't know what those are, they're the small white cups you can pump ketchup or mustard in at a fast food restaurant. Then you can wrap a piece of saran wrap from underneath and tie a bow on it to make it look cute. If your decorations are larger, you could place them in a clear plastic cup and do the same with the saran wrap.
Hope that works!
