    Hi! Love your sea creatures. I am making them to go on a cake for my nephew. I am making the fondant creatures in advance. Is it okay to leave seaweed and creatures out or do I have to refrigerate them. I find when I keep things in the fridge they soften and lose shape. Like the hello kitty I made she is starting to smoosh a little. Any suggestions?

    Cute and you made it look really simple.  However, I'm sure I would complicate it. LOL  Thanks for posting.

    Thank you for the tutorial. How long do you leave these to dry? How long before you can place them on the cupcake? Ive had a problem in the past with fondant being too soft and loosing shape.
