How long does fondant and modeling chocolate stay good once sculpted? Not covering a cake, but as figures etc. How many days?
I know that fondant last for a long time. I do not know about modeling chocalate since I do not use it.
If you can keep bugs away fondant &/or gp will last for many, many years. Choco/modeling paste is a different matter. It draw bugs (depending on where you live) faster and is more touchy to heat. Choco also will develop a dusty taste after just a few days. Hope that helps.
How far in advance could I make the modeling chocolate one do you think? 4 days?
I have no experien ce w/ modeling choco but from what I have read on here yes, that would be about the limit. Keep it stored in a cool, dark place, best if in a cake box or similar.
