How far in advance can I make MMF? I am going out of town for about a week and I have a cake to do as soon as I get back. I'd like to make the MMF before I leave. If it's all wrapped up and air-tight, how long can it sit before it is used?

I've had some that has still been good after a few months. And I don't put mine in the fridge. Just make sure you wrap it extremely well - I use double layers of plastic wrap and then seal in a freezer-weight plastic bag. If it is a little dry when you go to use it stick it in the microwave for a few seconds to soften up. You can also knead with a very small amount of shortening to help soften it up.

I made some mmf in Nov, not been in the fridge and it is still good. I heat it in micro for 20 sec intervals and it is just fine. Make sure not to over heat, it gets soft on the inside before the outside. Don't want any burns... Enjoy your time away from home!!

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm glad to know I can make it in advance and not be so rushed when I get back. I'm going to Vegas! Woo hoo!!!
