Hello, well this is my first time making MMF and I think from all the things I read here that it is best to get all of the air out of the MMF when letting it set . I greased mine, wrapped it twice in saran wrap, put it into a bag for a food saver then used the machine to get all of the air out and sealed it.

Was I wrong to do this? And freezing left over MMF can I use the food saver?icon_redface.gif

Not sure about freezing it but I have my leftover mmf on a food saver bag right now. Keeps it from hardening.

How long does you MMF last in the saver bag? And if you bag the left overs where do you keep it?

Thanks

I freeze my fondant all the time but this is what I use for cut-out, flowers and decorations.  Some of that has been in the freezer for over a year and is still just fine.  I grease it well, plastic wrap and put into resealable baggies.  I have covered a cake with a batch that was frozen for about 6 months that I made too much of and it worked just fine.

 

When I took it out, I let it thaw overnight.  Zapped it in the micro for a few and added a tablespoon of corn syrup to make sure it would be stretchy enough.  It actually worked better than the fondant I make two days ahead!

 

Just make sure you seal it well and it should be fine.

It was something I just started doing. So far, for a month and it is in a drawer in my kitchen.
