I am making a cake for Saturday that will be covered in buttercream but have fondant decorations. I'm also making cake pops for the same person and know both will take me alot of time.....so, I want to make the fondant decorations tonight or tomorrow and then store until I assemble the cake Friday night. How should I store them, was thinking between two sheets of wax paper and put in a ziploc. I'm worried they will get too soft but I suppose once I put them on the cake, they'll dry out a bit.
Just did some. I placed mine on a sheet of waxed paper and they're sitting on my dining room table - tonight before I go to bed I'll place another sheet of waxed paper loosely over the top as a dust guard. You actually want them to set up a little - makes them easier to handle when putting them into place. Fondant items take weeks to dry hard and in the Spring there's a lot of moisture in the air which keeps the fondant soft (soaks up moisture like a sponge).
I did mine on monday for a cake thats for friday.. I just put them in a cool a/c'd room/room temp to dry out.. they are already a bit hard to the touch and ready for deco on friday!
