One of the best memories of celebrating a birthday is, undoubtedly, the fondant figure. But how long does a figure made of fondant last? Today we will solve this doubt. Keep reading.

Surely, you you want to give a birthday cake with a custom fondant topper and keep the topper. It can be a unique and very special memory of that day. But…

…How long do the fondant figures last?

Fondant toppers, once they are firm, can last a long time, years if you do it right. Although it is normal to think, and many times it happens, sugar attracts ants. I have to tell you that this is not the case with fondant figures. 

During all these years, I have kept many figures, because that’s right, they last for years (as long as they are preserved properly. In this post I will tell you how to store fondant toppers), I have never seen an ant or bug near them. So we can discard that belief.

The only thing they need is a care quite similar to fondant. Here I tell you how to store fondant. Why similar? Because in some respects, having changed the state of fondant, they are not the same despite remaining the same.

Once fondant hardens, the biggest change is its fragility. It becomes something like a porcelain figurine. You do not believe it? Take a figure that is completely dry and drop it to see what happens. But before you do, make sure you don’t really like it and please don’t tell me I didn’t warn you.

Joking apart. They are very delicate figures, they break very easily, and they need to be away from the sun.

Here you can watch some ideas to store them!
