I have a birthday cake to make for my wonderful "neice" for her 6th birthday this sunday- I had originally planned to rent a cake pan form the local BB but unfortunetly they had nothing related to what she asked for her cake to be! BALLERINA theme- so I had this idea to use marshmallow fondant to make a ballerina to sit on top of her cake! But I'm having a few issues finding info about marshmallow fondant figures. So I need help a.s.a.p.

OK... so the Party is Sunday- I don;t have time Saturday as we're extremly busy on saturday and Sunday the Party starts at 1 pm and there is no way I can get it done that quickly.

Q 1. How long in advance can I make the Ballerina figurine to sit on top of the cake?

Q 2. How do I store the ballerina once she is finished?

Q 3. will regular food colouring work to colour the fondant?

Q 4. any other suggestions involving MMF?

Thanks in advance!

In regards to how far ahead to make the ballerina, visit this site:  http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/DecoratingFondantQA.htm.  There are several tips on marshmallow fondant that may be helpful for you.  You can use food coloring to color the fondant but this site mentions other options.  I hope this helps you.  Good luck with the ballerina.  I would like to see your finished product.  Will you post it once it is done?
