OK.... I followed the directions to the letter.... I have my fondant sitting on the counter.... I can kneed it...but my question is???? Should I keep adding powder sugar til it gets stiff...or should I let it cool some more then add it if it needs some.... When I pick it starts to droop right away...could this be from it still being warm.?????

Let it sit a little while. you don't want to add too much sugar. This will make it crack and break!

Put it in a plastic container and leave it standing at room temperature, there no need to refridgerate it, you should wrap it well with plastic wrap so it won't hardened.

I divide my MMF in half and put it in those airtight freezer ziplock bags... I can keep it for 3-4 weeks like that and it's still good... nice and pliable. thumbs_up.gif

Well. even though some of the regular rolled fondant you buy is refridgerated or actually frozen, I find personally that marshmallow fondant doesn't like to be refridgerated even before using it. It tends to dry out a lot easier than regular rolled fondant. Storing it double bagged airtight will make it last longer though, but it really doesn't have the extended shelf life of regular fondant.
