I need to stock pile some roses and orchids for upcoming cakes. I would like to make them now and use them within a month, but my house is not air conditioned and the heat and humidity is terrible. When I made roses for my last cake, they were dry and nicely set, but then wilted a few days later on a very humid day.Luckily, I was able to save them by resupporting the petals and they firmed up again before I needed to assemble the cake. What is the best way to store premade gumpaste flowers so that they won't be affected by the weather? Thanks in advance!
