I just made mm fondant for the first time and I think it worked! The instructions on one website said not to refrigerate your cake after covering it in the mm fondant. Has anyone put their cake in the fridge after using mm fondant? I am using homemade frosting with milk in it so I'd have to put it in the fridge.

Thanks!

I have always put it in the fridge. Have never had any problems.

Thanks! I read that when you take the cake out of the fridge moisture will condense and ruin the surface of the fondant. But if you both have done it with out problems I won't stress about refrigerating my cake.

I do it all the time. I think the condensation issue may depend on the climate but even if it happens, just DONT touch it and let it dry and it will be exactly as it was!

Hi....I pretty much asked the same question tonight & this is what I received: emiyeric wrote: "if you plan on refrigerating, put your cake in a box or cover with plastic so that condensation falls onto the wrapper instead of the fondant. When you bring it to room temperature, do so still in the wrapper so that the condensation does not dissolve your fondant. HTH! "

I just made my first batch of mmf and the texture is great and the price sure beats fondant. My question is can I use it in every way that you would use fondant? Are there any limitations?

I refrigerated my cake and had no problems with condensation. My house was on the cool side though, so that might have helped?!?? not sure.

I used just like I've used store bought fondant in the past. I also made some chocolate using cocoa and melted choc. chips, but that did change the texture, made it much softer and a little goey but I managed to work with it anyway. I did find it a tad hard to roll out though and the pink faded, but that might have been the brand I used, I tried a new one.
