Does Mmf Yellow Over Time?

I used some MMF I had in the pantry for about a month to make towers for a castle cake. Then I made a new batch for the building part. I noticed a considerable difference between the two - the newly mixed MMF was so much whiter! Does it yellow over time? Or could it be that since I put the MMF over ice cream cones for my towers, it just looks darker?

I have stored mine in the refridgerator for up to 3 weeks without any change in color. Could the problem be that you stored yours in the panty? Not sure at all here, just guessing. Also, "fresh" fondant will look a tiny bit different from "dry" fondant.

Thanks for the response. It had dried for 1 day, so that's probably it. I guess I will have to wait until the last minute to do the towers since I want them to match the cake. I really like to work ahead, since I am so pressed for time, but I don't see any alternative... OR would keeping it sealed in a plastic container avoid the drying and the discoloration?? I used to store my MMF in the fridge, but was told it wasn't necessary and I really need the fridge space! icon_smile.gif
