I froze my white chocolate fondant, and am wondering what the best way is to thaw it out. I'm guessing fridge over countertop for safety concerns, but how long does it need to thaw? And how long will it keep after that?

Thanks for your help!

Can you freeze fondant? I thought it messed the consistency up? Can't wait to hear what the pro's have to say!

Hmmmm, never froze fondnat before. I think I would thaw slowly...maybe in frig over the course of a few days. Then bring it out.

Not sure though....

I was sure I'd read somewhere that I was allowed to freeze fondant for later use ... ha! It would be just like me to have read it the other way around ... please, somebody tell me I didn't ruin all my batch of fondant!

I've frozen my left over fondant before. It works great. thumbs_up.gif First I wrap the fondant in plastic wrap, then I wrap it in foil, and finally I put it into a zip lock bag.
When I want to defrost it, I leave all the wrapping on and set it on the counter to thaw. I don't unwrap it until it's completely defrosted. I've never had any problems, and it still feels the same way it did before it was frozen.

Yay, good good good! Thanks! So, how long should I expect it to take for the stuff to be completely thawed?

I froze extra fondant I had left over from another cake job. I pulled it out two days before I needed to use it and put it in the fridge to defrost. Then I moved it to the counter for the last 8 hours before use. I found it actually worked better than if I let it rest overnight. It was more pliable and didn't rip or crack. Good luck!

My fondant thaws out on the counter in about an hour.
