Sugar Paste Timing

picture by flourconfections.com

How far in advance can I make sugar paste flowers for a cake I need to make later?

You can make them weeks in advance as long as you have a safe space out of direct sunlight to store them. Sunlight can fade the colors. Recommend storing in a cardboard cake box on a high shelf to avoid breakage. Don’t store in airtight plastic containers or they won’t dry.
