Hi Cakers.....

I have melted some Wilton candy melts. I currently have a lot of leftovers. I really hate to throw it out. I have the left overs in a glass cup covered about 3 times with Glad Press and Seal. Can I reuse this in about 3 or 4 days??

Thanks for the help!!!


Happy Caking.....=)

I don't see why not, just keep them dry as always. The way you have it wrapped seems like plenty of care!

For sure you can, they keep just fine for months! Just in a cool dry place is fine.

I put some in a disp decorating bag and melted. After, I stored it in a ziplock bag. When I needed to use it again, I just reheated in the dec bag, then kneaded it smooth. Now it's back in cool storage again!

I reuse mine all the time. I usually pour them out onto a piece of waxed paper in a disc, then store it in an airtight container when hard, this way it is thinner and quicker to remelt when needed.

I like your idea Moranda. To think I always threw it away. Should have asked you guys.

Yes ! No sense in wasting, I usually save up all my leftovers then mix them all together and melt to make candy clay.

ACan you save it even after using shortening to thin it out?

Sure.  I either just spread it out on a non stick mat - cool - and break it up into a airtight bag.  If I have a lot left over (and am bored - lol) I pour it into a piping bag and pipe large dots, cool and into a resealable bag.
