Hi. My son's party is tomorrow and I've iced all the cupcakes tonight. I made some RI transfers (traced RI over a pic and flooded) as topper (flat) to put on the cupcakes. I just wanted to know if I can put them on tonight or if I should leave it to the last minute?

In case it in anyway affects the answer, the buttercream recipe was: 250g Butter, 2 1/2 cups icing sugar and 1/4 cup milk.

Thanks for any help in advance!

Actually I also made some gumpaste/fondant figures as toppers - can I put them on tonight too?

Again, thank you so much for any help

I'm curious of the answer as well. I've heard not to add dark colored fondant too far in advance because the color may bleed to the buttercream. Does anyone know if this will happen?
