I made a big batch of fondant (my first time ever!! and it even turned out icon_biggrin.gif ) anyhow I used some for decorations on my cake but have quite a bit left over. Is there anything I can do with it? I'd hate to throw it away. Thanks.

wrap it up very tightly in plastic wrap.
toss in a heavy duty zip lock baggie or into a plastic container.

store for up to 1 year. (can even freeze it)

i suggest a very light coating of crisco before wrapping.... it will help keep it from drying out should any air get in

When I have 'just a bit' leftover, [ to little to really save ] I like to make different molded flowers, bows, little bees...what ever that I might be able to use for a quick deco on a later cake.

Today, i had some fondant with tylose made to work on a brim for a cowboy hat I'm working on for Saturday. I used the leftovers to make molds that I can use with regular fondant after it dries hard as a rock! I took a silver button and pressed it into the fondant and will use it later to make a fondant version that I can use on the the trim on the cowboy hat . When it is hard you can dust with corn starch and use over and over again.

Ooooh. I never thought of making a mold out of fondant! I'll have to try that.

i use the scraps for flowers and little bits and pieces after they're dried out (fast for smaller things) i put them in a storage container ready to use

A few weeks ago, I had several different colors of fondant left over. Not enough of one for a cake. My daughter announced shes expecting so I made a cake for the daddy to be, rolled all the colors together and got a beautiful marbled fondant for his cake. I had some nasty tasting Wilton on hand in while that I used to make baby booties out of for the top of his cake. This is his first baby.... it was fathers day... and he cried. icon_biggrin.gif
