I am planning on making farm animal face cupcake toppers out of fondant and wanted to make them ahead of time. They are flat and will sit on top of the iced cupcakes. How far in advance can I make them and how should they be stored?

Flat fondant decorations like these can be made several days/weeks in advance and stored in a cool, dry place away from light. Store them flat in a covered container. Remember that sometimes purple tones tend to fade over time, so limit your use of purple if you are making your decorations more than a day or 2 in advance.
