I have a cake that I am going to make next month, but I want to make the figurines and other decorations in advanced. How long can I keep a sugarpaste figure? Where should I keep it? Should I freeze it? If I do when do I take it out of the freezer. Also, I have the "Confectionary Arts" brand of it edible?
I know these questions have probably been asked, but with 800 more pages in the forums, I decided it was best if I just ask. icon_redface.gif

I have GP flowers and figures I made a year ago. Wrap in tissue and put in a cardboard box - keep these away from heat & humidity.

Don't know about your tylose brand but I would assume it is. Their website should have this info.

Yes, what snowshoe said.
Do NOT fz your finished figures. They will keep perfectly at room temp, away from heat, light and dust.
Tylose is a brand of CMC. If I remember correctly it does say to keep at room temp. I kept some for over a year and it worked perfectly each time.
It is edible when used properly.

I wouldn't but them in the fridge. I usually make mine and place them in a ziplock container(airtight). They will last. The tylose will keep for about a
yr. WHen I make my gumpaste I use tylose and if used properly it's non toxic.
