DD is having a party soon, despite being fairly efficent....DD's party is quite early in the mornign and I am trying to see where I can save some time, as I will need to ice a cake and want to allow lots of time for that, as it is not a strong skill set of mine!!! I will have sausages rolls to make, sandices to make etc...so lots to do....

I thought I recall an old friend saying that she would cut her carrot sticks the night before and then store them in a zip lock bag in water in the fridge.

I find if I do cut and store them, even for a short amoutn of time they go a bit dry on the sides.

I could trial it, but can't be fugged...I am sure there is some advice here.....

I cut carrot sticks and celery sticks often and they are fine for several days (1-3 days) in Tupperware containers.

Yeah I have used the fridge mates, but I always find they go a bit dry on all the sides......
