How far in advance can you add color to white fondant and how long will it keep?

Jessie - from New York, NY

Over time colored fondant will naturally fade when exposed to light. I would suggest coloring the fondant right before your ready to use it, that way the color stays vibrant. 
If you are storing colored decorations, I'd suggest keeping them at room temperature, in an airtight container, away from light.
