I am fairly new to using fondant and would like to make a rapunzel tower as a cake topper for my daughter's birthday. I would like to make it in advance, but not sure how early I can make it or how to store once it's made. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The cake tutorial found on here is linked:

I would add a bit of Gumtex to my fondant.
The time ahead that you can create it is unlimited except for 2 things.
1 - Make sure you store it away from where ants or other insects can get to it
2 - Purple fondant fades Green can also fade a bit. . To get around it is you can make the tower completely before, but I would add the roof and flowers and vines close to the date.
I store it in a container with a lid to keep the light away from it. I do not make it air tight. I am not in a high humidity area so that is not really a concern. I add Wilton gumtex to the fondant so it gets a bit harder. Funny, that's the only wilton product I use. If you are in a high humidity area make a bed of rice at the bottom of the box or container.
