I have a box of Wilton Fondant that I have had in my pantry for about 3yrs now. It has never been opened. I am getting ready to make a cake for my nephew that calls for fondant. I can't find an expiration date on the box. Does this stuff last forever? Do you think it would still be good to use?
Maybe, but I wouldn't eat 3 year old food.
It's probably OK. It's sugar and it's been sealed. Just open it and taste it. You'll know if it's stale. As an executive chef told me one time...if it smells good and it tastes good, then it is good.
If you're concerned about it...which you probably don't need to be...just use it for decor items like bows and flowers.
Personally I wouldn't use it on a cake myself.
Contact Wilton and they can tell you what the shelf life is for it.
Thank you all for your responses. I went ahead and bought more today.
Most rolled fondants, including Wilton, have an unopened shelf life of 12 months.
[Fondx has a shelf life of 8 months.]
