Hi everyone! I made some fondant ( mixed with cmc ) butterflies and then I attached picks to them. I have stood them up in some floral foam. Do I have to store them away or can I leave them out. The party is in 2 weeks but they aren’t going into a cake. My daughter is having a Miraculous themed party and I’m going to be inserting them between roses. As is winter here, do you think they will sag or once it’s dry, it’s dry? Thank you in advance!
Once they are dry and hard, keep them covered in a simple plastic container with a lid on. The lid can be loose. It is important to protect the pieces from humidity, heat, dust, bugs, direct sunlight.... and hungry children! Never put them on the fridge! They will last for years!
Thank you so much!
I agree with ReginaCoeliB in part. Place fondant decorations in the container, but don’t put the lid on unless container in in a cool, dry place. If it’s the slightest bit warm, condensation will build up inside the container. And fondant hates condensation….pieces will wilt.
For only a short while like two weeks, I would leave them standing in the floral foam and drape a paper towel over them to keep off the dust. That being said, that will only work if your room is free of ants (and such) and no little fingers can reach them.
