I made lots of fondant pearl balls and was wondering what the best way is to store them. I store my bulk homemade fondant triple wrapped in the freezer, but I know I will be re-kneading, etc.
For these pearls, which I would just use from the container, do I store them out of the fridg/freezer? I bought some great Ball plastic freezer containers and they are an excellent size for stuff like this: http://www.kitchenkrafts.com/product.asp?pn=PG8200&bhcd2=1246029298
I just keep mine in a container like that, keep them dry and clean (and not really air tight) they will stay nice for almost foerver!
If your going to be using them within the next couple of days, they will be fine sitting out at room temperature. let them dry and store them in a tupperware container until ready to use.
No, I am not planning on using them soon. How long are they 'okay'? I assumed they'd last for quite awhile airtight.
Most fondant will last 4-6 weeks if kept stored properly. I think you would be fine keeping them at room temperature... I never refridgerate my fondant.
If they are dry and kept in a covered container, I am sure they will be good for more than a few weeks. (several online stores sell them already made and I am sure they don't make them fresh every 4 to 6 weeks)
