Ok, this is going to be my week for bombarding the forums with questions. I am doing the cake for my daughter's baby shower, it is next Sunday and I live 3 1/2 hoursfrom her. I am baking the cake here and freezing it because I am not familiar with her oven. It is going to be all buttercream with fondant accents. My question, can I color the fondant here and then take it there and cut the shapes, strips and circles? If so how do I keep the fondant soft and pliable until I am ready to use it? As you can tell I don't use fondant much at all. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Wrap your fondant in plastic wrap and then store it in a ziplock bag until you're ready to roll it out and cut the shapes.

Hi there, yes you can colour the fondant in advance. Once you have done that, wrap it with saran wrap and put it in a plastic bag. icon_smile.gif

It will also help if you rub a little shortening on it before putting in the the saran wrap.

Do what they all say and the shortening is a must. Will you be using multiple colors? If so, keep them separate for obvious reasons icon_smile.gif Good luck!
