I've searched but been unsuccessful finding an answer. I was wondering how long fondant can be stored at room temp? I made Michele's fondant last night & was wondering how long of a shelf life it will have if I wrap it in plastic, put in freezer bag & in airtight container? Didn't know if it would be any different than store bought or not. Thanks
i haven't made fondant but i use satin ice. i never put it in the fridge. it stays wrapped in the bag it came in and then sealed in the bucket. i don't know if that helps.
I've always thought what is in it that could go bad? Marshmellows and suger have a really long shelf life before being opened.
So I am curious what others think as well.
Fondant will last forever if you store it right. I roll my fondant into a ball then rub crisco all over it then wrap w/ saran wrap. Then wrap w/ tinfoil & either put it in a ziploc bag or a tupperware bowl. I mostly store in ziploc bag. If it tastes good & isn't hard as a rock it's still good I also store my gumpaste this way. I've never stored fondant in the freezer or frig it always keeps fine this way. Even if it is hard you can try putting it in the microwave for a few seconds, it might soften it up so you can use it. Hope that helps~
