I use MMF and I have quite a few cakes due in a few weeks. How long in advance can I make fondant and how do I store it? I would like to do as much in advance as possible.
lasts up to a year IF
very well wrapped in plastic warp and then sealed in a container.
1) warp tightly in plastic wrap (get all air out)
2) put in a heavy duty ziplock bag (get out as much air as possible)
3) toss in a lidded plastic container
4) then into the cupboard.
the key is KEEP THE AIR OUT -- so it doesn't dry out.
you could also use one of those vacuum sealers too (i don't as the bags are just too expensive!)
thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! This is going to help me soooo much.
