I'm thinking to make my MMF on a Tuesday, cover the cake on a Thursday and decorate on a Friday.
On the Tuesday if I wrap my MMF tightly in saran wrap, and put it in a ziploc bag can I leave it out on the counter, or should I put it in the fridge and pull it out so that it gets to room temperature before I start rolling it on Thursday?
Thanks so much! I'm new, and am very nervous about my very first fondant cake, so I have lots of questions.
I leave it out on the counter, tightly wrapped, and it's fine days later. It actually gets better after it sits for a while. There's nothing perishable in it. All the ingredients are fine at room temperature.
I coat mine in lard, then wrap in seran and put in the fridge, then when i want to use it i let it sit out for a few hours to get to room temp. Im gonna try leaving it out on the conter and see what happens.. Im always scared to do that
Welcome! I also coat my MMF in shortening, wrap in plastic wrap and place it in 2 Ziploc bags. I then put it in a plastic, airtight container and let it set in the cubbard. I have some MMF in the cubbards that is over a month old and it is still soft and pliable. I only use this MMF for accents or flowers but I could coat a cake with it if I wanted to.
