AI'm thinking 2 weeks max! To be safe I always make mine on like a Sunday if the cake is due on Friday/sat

Thanks!  So if I make it like a week and half to 2 weeks before the party, that should be good right?  I just crisco it, saran wrap it and put it in an air tight container, no refridgeration?  Thank you!!

I have kept it much longer than that.  I sort of judge by the date the marshmallows are "best used by".  I also only use this for fondant decorations, not covering a cake.  The MMF will get hard, but just soften it in the microwave for a few seconds until it is pliable again.

 

After I make my MMF, I smear Crisco around the outside of my fondant, double wrap in Cling Wrap/Saran Wrap, then store in an airtight container.  I have never refrigerated mine before.

So sorry I didn't see this sooner. I crico mine, wrap In plastic rap, and then put in a ziploc bag and press all the air out
