I would assume that any plastic container would be safe as long as you wash it and disinfect it before use. Do you ever buy large amounts of premade fondant? I buy the Satin Ice white-vanilla in 20 lb. tubs sometimes. The bucket it comes in is great for storage with things like that.

Not All HDPE Containers Are Food Grade
