Hi there, fondant figures will last fine. My suggestion is to keep them covered. i.e under a glass dome or in a clear box. You can take them out ahead of time if you need to show anyone. But cake dummies left uncovered, get dusty real quick and you don't want to have to make new ones, got the old ones start to look shabby. I also suggest making the dummy out of what you will sell it from. As if you make from clay, you can often model finer work, and then you may have a customer comment your Dummy looks different or better than the cake. Just some thoughts anyway

You'll also need to keep it away from direct sunlight. It will change the color of fondant.
