Hello everybody, so I recently made Nicholas Lodge Gumpaste recipe. I noticed that in the description it said to keep the gumpaste in the fridge when not in use. I used meringue powder combined with water as my egg whites so I don't think that the gumpaste will be susceptible to spoiling. My question is, does my gumpaste absolutely have to kept in the fridge at all times or will it be fine left out at room temp? Thanks everyone. :)

AIf you don't refrigerate it, it will mold.

However, you can keep it at room temperature for a day or two while you are doing your project.

AYou can also freeze it for several months.
