Put it in a resealable plastic bag (ziploc) and put it in a sealed container.

Just wrap in in plastic wrap (I usually coat it first with a small amt of crisco) then in a air tight bag - and pop it into the freezer - it will keep for months! Just defrost on your counter - still wrapped - for a few hours ..
HTH!

Reynolds Wrap makes a vacuum sealer for about $10. The bags are re-sealable so you can use them over and over. It works great and really saves the fondant, gumpaste or whatever you want.

GayeG, it's usually found where the ziploc bags are. I have one and sometimes it doesn't suck the air out.
