Advice for Storing Fondant Figures Please!

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

Hello Those-In-The-Know!
I’ve been asked to make a Dorothy the Dinosaur topper, which they want to use in a couple of months and I can’t make it sooner to the date. For figures that aren’t going to be eaten, I would suggest storing in a box in a cool place. But, they do want to eat it… So… Do u think I should advise them to keep it in the freezer??
If so… Does anyone know the process for thawing or even if this works?
I use mmf with tylose added for my figures.
Muchly appreciate your advice lovelies!
Mards :)

Ooh why do they want to it eat it, figures like this aren’t really meant to be eaten as taste pretty horrible. Either way, as for your first suggestion, keep I’m a cardboard box in a cool place.

I know right – can’t see the appeal of hard, dried up marshmallows myself! Think they just want the option to eat or not eat when the day comes. Thank u so much for your input Roo :D

the only thirsty hippo in my house is hubby :) dehidrator? does it make noise ?

It’s just a little… Thing! Haha! I imagine it’s a large version of those little silicone packets (that u find in children’s electronic toys when u open the box). They’re really effective. If u happen to leave your car window open in the rain, u put one o these jobbies in, wind up all your windows and in a few hours, the hippo (which is dry pellets when it’s new) is all full of water and your car is dry.

Thanks Mardie, it must just be a different brand in the u.k.

I’m in Canada, and I have never heard if this, nor seen it. Have to look around and see if I can find it….. :o)

I save the little dehydrator packs you get in medication and supplements bottles and store my gumaste or fondant figures in a shoe box with these little sachets. It helps dry them out making them easier to paint and keep the humidity out with h may spoil them.
