Freezing Fondant?

I just finished a big cake over the weekend and I made way too much MMF. I have 2 batches leftover? I'd hate to have to throw it all out, and I don't have a cake to do until May. I'm going to use a little of it this week by sending in cupcakes for my daughters valentines party, but that will hardly put a dent into it.

Has anyone ever froze it? How did it turn out? Did it still taste good?

Thanks in advance.

I found this in another thread, answer was by cakesmart

"I often make more MM fondant than I need, and freeze what's left. Of course I double wrap it in plastic and keep it in an airtight container with a lid. When I need it for the next cake I simply let it warm to room temperature before kneading it to make it pliable again. If the MMF is a little hard, I microwave it for about 5-10 seconds on half power and VOILA...it's soft and pliable."

I havent done it myself so I dont know if it works

Thanks for finding that! I did a search before posting and didn't come up with anything.
