Fondant accents in refridgerator

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay.... one more time..... the FONDANT question..... I'm making some cupcakes with cream cheese icing, which of course, must be kept cold......... I want to use fondant accents. They are for my local fire dept. banquet....... some will be little dalmations, ( fondant ears and spots ) Some will have axes, some will have fondant flames........ Now....... I NEED to make them today...... will the fondant accents wilt before Saturday afternoon , or should I put them on just before delivery ? I'm REALLY cramped for time......... THANKS SO MUCH .......

I would put them on just before delivery. They'd be OK in the fridge, but when you take them out they get sticky as they come to room temp. They will dry, but it will take a while. I'd just keep 'em out and dry and ready to go when you are. It won't take that long will it?

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

Well, I guess the only ones that would take any time is the dogs........maybe if I just leave the tongues and ears off until that morning, I would be okay.... I've got two sculpted cakes to go too, so I'm starting to panic........ LOL! THANKS for the quick reply !!

I assume your concern is the cream cheese icing breaking down the fondant decorations.

You could pipe a 'stick' to the back of each decoration with melted while chocolate and use that to stake the decorations in advance. The cream cheese won't break down the chocolate and the refrigeration will ensure everything stays firm until serving.
