Sorry if this question is already posted-- couldn't find it anywhere! I plan on making some edible image plaques to go on my daughter's birthday cake... I've never made them before & would like to make them as far in advance as I can just in case they don't turn out very well. Seems fairly simple, so I think I can handle it, but just in case... Her party is in 9 days..

How far in advance can I make them? I know the fondant/gumpaste will keep, but I don't want the image to fade...

Thanks!!

I've typically print mine out two days in advance. For instance, I have to deliver a cake tomorrow (Saturday), and I printed my edible image for the cake on Thursday evening.

I'm afraid my sugar sheet will become brittle if I print out too far in advance, even though I allow the ink to dry thoroughly and then store in a ziplock bag until I apply first thing Saturday morning.
