I'd make them with 50/50 fondant/gumpaste. Fondant is too fragile and breaks easily. You can make them anytime. Store in a cool, dry, dark, area. Use tissue when packing, cotton tends to get caught and then you have all these little fibers to clean off your flowers. I use silca gel packets with all my sugar sculptures also. I have some sculptures over two years old.


Note: Blue fades esily however, you are really closer to your date soyou shouldn't have too many problems.

Adding to what tip top said..You can store them in Viva paper or toilet tissue and after they are store in a dry dark area thay can last for a long time..

Months and years in a dark place like maybe pantry or closet.. They just get really hard, but won;t go bad.. They can also fade under a flourescent light

Also you want to store them in a cake box or a cardboard box and not something that is air tight.
