How do you keep your fondant from drying out while working with it?

Im doing an amazing Minecraft cake for my daughters Birthday and was wondering how to cut all those millions of squares and be able to assemble them without them all drying out and hardening before i want them too-----icon_biggrin.gif

i'm not sure about the specifics of minecraft squares but--

 

i use a piece of plastic wrap that is sprayed with pam or whatever fat spray you have--or just blast the top of the fondant--then keep it nicely covered with the plastic wrap

 

sometimes i cut things out of fondant and stack it into plastic bowls with tight fitting lids--gotta make sure they do not stick to each other of course

 

i can't leave them in there overnight necessarily but they stay well for a few so i can cut out a bunch and then finish them without them drying out in the meantime

Such good ideas!  May do the Airtight bowl---there will be so many TINY squares that may be the best best! Here goes nothing!  =-)

there's a plastic wrap that is sticky on one side--so you can really adhere it to the table top surrounding the rolled out fondant--or maybe tape it down even?

 

good luck!

Thanks K8Memphis!  it was def a long process and SO glad that is over with!  It wasn't the hardest cake I made but It took the longest!  The joy in her eyes when I was done is all that really matters!   I LOVE seeing the look on their faces!
