Welcome to the Cake Decorators Q&A
How long will roses last
Hi,I’m pretty new to cake decorating and have been practising making roses, if I make a whole batch to put on a cake and put them in an airtight box how long can I leave them for.
sugar flowers will keep for months stored in a air tight container
with a sheet of bubble wrap underneath and in between layers.keep in a cool place but not in the fridge on freezer as this will cause a build up of moisture
I made some flowerpaste roses about 3 years ago & they still look good as they day they were made,
I just layered them with tissue paper in a plastic box.
When my mum mum passed away we came across flowers made years ago (and I mean YEARS!) They were still good. They were only stored in cardboard boxes. As long as they are kept dry they are ok. The colour fades eventually though. It’s not a bad idea to make white ones and dust them the colour you want when needed. I also made some blue flowersonce and stored them but they turned mauve (or it may have been the other way round).
