Thanks mainly to this website I have fallen in love with creating things out of icing, but can anyone who also lives in a very humid climate like me (far north Australia) advise me on the best storage options for my decorations??? I have overcome the problems of drying them, keeping them free of ants, I know what "hoops" I must jump through according to council regulations if I want to sell them, but am a little unsure of how long they can be stored for (not having to use them immediately is a good selling point) and what is the best way to store them. A cardboard box is not going to work in our climate (if the humidity doesn't get them the ants will,) but I am so often told a plastic airtight container will make them go mouldy......aarghhh! Also, the decorations I made a month ago that used any amount of red colour are now speckled!! Is this normal or a brand problem. Any advice for this very keen but frustrated newbie will be greatly appreciated!!!! icon_confused.gif
