If I'm making marshmallow fondant only a few days in advance, how should I store it?
I'm going to use it on Friday, so I don't think I need to freeze it. Does it even need to stay cool at all?


Oh and one more thing... any unique ideas for a graduation cake?

Wrap it well in plastic wrap, then a ziploc bag. It'll be fine on the counter.

What should you do if you probably won't use it for a month or more?

I bought 5# of Satin Ice, used about a third of it and am debating about dividing it into two pieces and freezing it. Would this be best, or just put it into the refrigerator?

I keep mine wrapped, in the bucket and on the counter. It should keep 6 months like that.

Thanks, Foxymomma. I had some Wilton fondant when I first started decorating, and that stuff dried hard as a brick still in the original wrappings. Of course it is just as well, I wouldn't have eaten it any way. LOL
