I don't put it in the fridge. I usually just rub it with Criso, wrap it with plastic wrap and put it in a ziplock bag until the next day.

I don't. I use it right away. Fresh made MFF works the best for me. (when I don't use satin Ice) You can always add more sugar if it's too soft. I store left overs and re-use for detail work etc. I just rub some criso over, wrap in saran wrap and then put in zip bag (air squeezed out ofcourse) and store inthe cabinet. When I need to use left overs I just put in microwave for a few seconds. I usually have to add a little more criso after heating. Works like a charm for me.

No fridge. I always store MMF at room temp.

You can store it in the fridge if you make a batch, use some, and know you won't need it again for some time... then you just let it come back up to room temp, or you might need to hit it for about 20 seconds in the microwave.

I'd say what happened to your batch that cracked was that you had crystallized your sugar while making it and just didn't realize it. Nothing will bring back crystallized MMF. I


If you are making flowers today and need it a little stiffer, simply knead in a little corn starch. It absorbs the extra moisture. You don't need much, so start with a little and add as you go. It does not affect the taste.
