What to do with leftover fondant?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have a good amount of leftover fondant...white, red (made with red candy melts...what an awesome recipe that was), and yellow.

I don't have any plans for needing it in the next...I don't know...six months or so...lol. Perhaps my next son's birthday in April.

Any ideas on what else I can do with it? Can I make candy out of it or something?

I can only tell you about bought fondant so my advice may not help but... wrap the crud out of it and save it. You never know when yo may need it. if it keeps i guarantee you you will use little bits here and there. When I started paying with fondant and colors I played with colors and fondant all day long. end result was that i had about 20 little balls of colored fondant. I didnt know what to do with it so i wrapped it and kept it. by the end of the 3rd month i had used up all the little balls. hth

fondant has a long shelf life, just save it. You can also freeze fondant to save it even longer.

It's MMF...so it should still be ok to just store? There's nothing else I can make with it?

all you can do with fondant is use it on cakes - covering or accents. surprise surprise, your next cake will have red accents! (can also water it down to practice piping...)
maybe practice your modelling?
i know the home made ones dont last as well as bought ones, so maybe freeze it if you really wont use it.

You could make some sugar cookie cut outs and cover with the fondant, sorry I have no other ideas. Yes, you can store MMF for a long time.

I disagree with Princess_B about storing home made fondant. I always make my own fondant and some of my colors have been sitting around my shop for months with no issue, but like I said, you can freeze fondant if you are concerned.

Well my next cake (after these next upcoming two) will be my 2 turning 3 yr old son's birthday cake in April. Toy Story. I'm sure I can manage to find a use for it in that cake. Thanks all!!!

Can't you whip up some christmas cookies? I made cake-mix cookies (the easiest cookies in the world and SOOOOO tastey) for my students at school and used my leftover fondant to decorate. Just dye the white green or somethin and go crazy!

By the way, mind sharing that wonderful recipe? icon_smile.gif

yes it definitely stores well, both bought & homemade. I have bunches. You can always practice modeling flowers or something...practice for Toy Story. Or you can cover thinly iced cupcakes too

That red MMF sounds cool! I can't wait to try it!! I have a bucket of leftover fondant that I probably won't use on a cake or anything but I keep it around to practice with. In my pix I have a purple and orange penguin and a bright pink fondant frog I did that with. icon_lol.gif

When putting fondant on cookies, how is the fondant attached? Royal Icing?
