Hi all - There's a great sale near me on fondant in 2# and 5# buckets. I have a project soon where I'd use some but nowhere near all the bucket... so, is it worth the sale price -- will I be able to keep the fondant for a long time? Wrapped and re-wrapped in saran or the like? Fridge or no fridge (no is what I think...).
Thanks very much for your help!!
I bought some fondant a few months ago in a 5# bucket. I have used it a little at a time and it is still fine. I just make sure to wrap it up tightly and reseal the bucket each time. I wouldn't put it in the fridge. Mine has been just fine in stored in a cabinet.
a pamphlet i got with my fondant says it lasts 6 months to a year. i guess it also depends on the manufacturer. some fondant u can refridgerate. my local cake shop says they freeze their opened fondant and just rethaw. i keep my at room temp and it still tastes good after a few months.
I bought Satin Ice over a month ago, I keep it out. I went to check it yesterday because I need to use some this week and it is mostly fine.
It seems a little hard in some places. I wrapped it really well in the plastic it came in and kept it in the original tub. I read here that you can coat it in crisco and then wrap it. I probably should have done that.
I opened my Satin Ice bucket about 6 months ago....no problems as of yesterday.
