I want to make some fondant disks to go on some cupcakes for a convention my family helps with. Unfortunately we are going on a trip just before the con so the disks need to be prepared beforehand.

How far ahead of time can they be made, some will need extra decoration (BC or RI)? Should I try freezing them or just leave them in a safe place lightly covered? They are going to be placed on fresh cupcakes right before the con...

I made some fondant daisies for cupcakes about a week before the party. Just so I could just sit them on quickly. They still melted in our mouths!

at Xmas I did that. The point is to keep the fondant soft I think. So, I got a sealed container, put the discs in between parchment paper and sealed the lid. They lasted quite a few days like that. I just took them out as I needed them. I just made sure to keep the air from them. Hope that helps.

Linda McClure (the Cricut Lady) cuts her designs out ahead of time, lays them on a cakeboard, covers lightly w/plastic wrap and puts them in the freezer. She says they work great when she takes them out.

I guess I'll do a trial run with one in the freezer and one in a container to see what I like. The freezing option sounds more appealing since we are going to be away for 2 weeks or more and come back less than a week before the event. AKA no sleep and no time during the week to work on more than making the cupcakes. I want them to hopefully be decorated and stay fresh for 1 month if possible so I can just cover the cuppies in BC and stick the fondant disks on top. I don't expect anyone to eat this fondant, but I don't want to kill anyone if they do eat it icon_razz.gif
