so these are little fondant faces you stick onto cupcakes??

 

they can be made anytime now

 

i'd guess you'd need formers to dry them on

 

oh, wait, you want them to stay soft?

 

i would want them to crisp up and harden

 

well hmm

 

keeping them soft i don't know

 

making them in advance --now is fine to be used this weekend imo

Yes, I want them to stay soft so that I can form them over the cupcake.

I have made my fondant decorations more than a week in advance. For the ones that I want to remain pliable for forming to the cake or cupcake, I put them on a cake round and cover with "Press and Seal" and stick in the freezer. When I'm ready to use, I take it out of the freezer and it's pliable within minutes and looks like I just made it!!
