There was an awesome satin ice sale on GSA so I purchases a 20 lb bucket, out of which i just used about 2 lbs. I've never had this much fondant left over, usually it's just enough to store in a ziploc bag. My question is, has anyone ever kept leftover fondant right in the satin ice bucket? Does it stay ok this way? Perhaps I should rub some shortening on the top of it and stick some plastic wrap on and shut it tight?

i always buy the 20lb satin ice and just store the leftovers in the bucket. the airtight seal keeps it fresh icon_biggrin.gif the first time i bought it i was worried about the same thing so i took it all out, divided it into 8 pieces, and sealed each air-tight using my food saver. it did the trick, but i found its just as good as leaving it in the bucket

I have always bought the 20 lb. bucket. As long as I keep it tightly wrapped in the can it remains fresh for a long time. icon_smile.gif

I tie a rubber band around the bag, put it in the bucket, and seal the lid. Keeps great!
