Hi, I'm new to the forum and taking a stab at making my first fondant decorations. I'm making cupcake toppers (see pic) for my son's 1st birthday and wondering how far in advance I can make these and how I should store them? Because I'm new to it, I'm thinking it will take me a few weeks to get them all done (in between chasing after my little guy!) Thanks for any advice you can give me! :)

You can make these as far ahead as you need. They will not go bad. I let mine dry, then store them in a plastic container - I separate layers with waxed paper. They are not too fragile (but not unbreakable).

If you don't want them to dry out, store them on plastic wrap lined cookie sheets or plastic wrap lined cardboard boxes Completely cover and seal the sheet  or boxed decorations with more plastic wrap and then enclose the cookie sheets or boxes in unscented garbage bags or similar bags. Keep away from sun or heat.You can make these a few weeks ahead and likely even longer.

Ok, great... thank you so much!! I should have mentioned that I plan on making marshmallow fondant, will that make a difference?

No, no difference.
