My daughter's 4th birthday is in Sept. and I was wondering how far in advance I could make the fondant Hello Kitty decorations for her cake if I place them in an air tight container. Could they get too dry and crack?
This will be my first time making her birthday cake and I am very nervous, but I think I can do it. thumbs_up.gif

My sister just made her first 2 cakes and they were awesome. We are bound and dertermined to start making our own cakes. The days of spending $100+ on birthday cakes is hopefully over!!

you could make them now, if you are making fondant figures, you may want to add just a bit of gumtex or gumpaste in with the fondant. It makes the texture easier to mold and I think they dry a little nicer with less cracks and they are more durable. You can do it!

you can make them now, the longer they have to dry in my opinion the better..

i finished my daughters 2nd birthday earlier in the week but all the decorations on it i made 2 months ago...
