I have a 5 lb bucket of Satin Ice chocolate fondant. I was going to use it for some small embellishments on a cake for Saturday. The sell by date is Aug 2011 and it says can be stored up to 1 year. It has been opened previously, at least 3 or 4 months ago. It is still wrapped really well and it tastes fine. Would you use it? Thanks

I wouldn't risk it if you were doing it for a customer. Then again, I am crazy about best by dates. Drives my husband crazy! What about just using regular fondant colored brown if you don't need it to taste like chocolate? (I have to say, the stuff is really yummy!) Maybe ask Satin Ice customer service. They are really nice to work with.

While the recommended store until date has passed for your fondant, Satin Ice products have been known to still be usable well past their store until date. As long as the fondant is pliable and appears normal, you can most likely still use it. Please use your best judgement.

I always rewrap any fondant or g/p into small/large logs and wrap with saran wrap and put in FREEZER BAGS. Keeps a long time. Just get out what i need. hth
