I apologize as I know ts has been asked before but for some reason I can't search beyond one page.
I need to make fondant zoo animals to place on cupcakes(75 of them). As I am home with a 4yr old and 7 month old time is at a premium.
How far in advance can I make the animals? I presume most people will remove them but kids might eat them. It is needed for Dec. 17. Can I start now? And if I do what is the best way to store them.
I would start doing them as soon as you can. Then you won't be rushed. You can store them in a "tupperware" like container or ziplock bags. Keep them out of direct sunlight so they don't fade.
Good Luck and be sure to post some pictures!
You can start now, as long as they're stored in the dark (to prevent fading), and in an OPEN plastic container (or a closed CARDBOARD box) they'll be fine. As long as they're allowed to dry out they'll store well.
Post pics....you can start now, that way you don't feel rushed or run out of time. Store in an air tight container in a cool dark place.
^ Hi Becca...
I've had nothing but problems storing figurines in air-tight containers....heads & limbs etc bend/sag, and colour painted on eyes bleed/blur into the surrounding fondant. I'm wondering how long you allow yours to dry before putting them into an air-tight container? Or if you put a moisture absorber or something in the container with them perhaps?
