For how long can I store RKTs? I need to make a batch for a small item, but hate to waste a full or even a half batch. Has anyone ever frozen the leftovers to use on later sculpting projects? icon_confused.gif

Thanks.

I woulod also like to find this out as well as how far in advance can I cover a RKT item with fondant. Can it be done weeks in advance, like a dummy cake?

I have made cars from RKT and covered them in sugarpaste. Mine were in the fridge for 3 weeks and were fine, and i was told they tasted ok when eaten. I hope this helps xx

Storage? What is this storage you speak of?

Actually I buy them and those are stored for quite a while on the store shelf.

Wow I just wish I could keep my mitts off the leftovers long enough to need to store them! I really can control myself around RKT icon_lol.gif I would think if you wrapped in wax paper then put them in a Rubbermaid container they would be good for awhile (but again I don't know for how long since I really don't think they ever made it to a week in my house)

If that is how she keeps her shape then I'll have to go to Costco and get them in bulk. She is sexy.

I decided to just buy some pre-made last night. Guess that's the lazy coming out in me! icon_rolleyes.gif

The box had a use or freeze by date on it. I'm sure there is some sort of preservative or something that I wouldn't add with home made, but I was more concered with the cereal getting soggy and not being able to work with it once defrosted.

Edna shapes the RKT's as a thin, attractive latina before she stores 'em in her tummy!

Do you store leftover RKT in the refrigerator? Also, when reusing them, do you just allow them to come back to room temperature before molding them?
