I'm desperate for help!! I'm inexperienced with fondant, but made some. It came out good. My question is how do I store it? I've read to freeze it, refrigerate it, leave it at room temp. I've also read not to do those things. I made some yesterday and the day before. I will need to roll them out and cover on december 13th.
What is the best way to store them? I don't think any of the ingredients I used go bad. Can I double wrap and put it in a ziploc bag or container and leave at room temp?
Here's the recipe I used:
1/4 cup water 1T gelatin 1/2 cup corn syrup 1T glycerin 1t vanilla Powdered sugar Food coloring
I'm freaking out because nowmI'm worried that I will have to wait until 2 days before the birthday party and. start over!!
Yes, it will be fine if you double wrap it and put it in a ziplock at room temperature. Just keep it airtight in the ziplock so it doesn't dry out.
AThank you thank you thank you!! You have no idea how much stress you helped alleviate! !
How long will it keep for? I don't know what the shelf life is for non marshmallow homemade fondant.
Mine has kept for about a month. I have used fondant for gum paste that is older than a month, but it might be more difficult to knead. I have also frozen fondant, but it takes a day or two to defrost. Don't freeze it on a cake, as it sweats.
AThanks again Norasmom! There are so many nice, helpful people on this site :-)
AI agree. Wrap in plastic wrap tightly then a plastic bag with all the air squeezed out. Also roll it into a ball first. If it gets a little dry add a few drops of glycerin :-)
