help with fondant

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

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

and

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.

thank you Lynne!  How do you store it?  I have seen some say in an airtight container and others say leave it open.  Thanks for your help!

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.
