Okay, I've prepared all these colors that we'll be using to decorate our cake with. You can do as many colors as you want. You do it the same as you did here. Notice I have them all wrapped up in plastic. You can either put them into baggies or wrap it in plastic wrap, but it does dry up, and you don't want it to get dried while you're working on one thing. You want it to remain soft. So you keep it stored in the baggies like this, and if you want to prepare the fondant colors ahead of time, and use them in a couple days or the next day, you want to make sure you wrap them all tightly in plastic. And then put it all into a plastic bucket so it does not become dried out. We'll store at room temperature, you don't want put it in the refrigerator because it can sweat when it comes out and get wet. You keep it room temperature and it stores for quite a while. You can read the instructions on the packaging to get exactly how long you can store it unrefrigerated. And even if it's stored in the plastic it will become a little bit harder when you take it out. All you do is you'll grease your hand up again and re-knead it, and it will become pliable and workable again.
