I just started using Marshmallow fondant. I have two cakes to do on Saturday and was wondering how far ahead I can do them and everything still tastes fresh. I've already done the first cake and I am hoping for the best but that one is for family. The other one is for money. If I go ahead and do the buttercream underneath and cover in the fondant will it still be good on Saturday?

I had heard someone say in the wilton discussion forum that they cover with a towel so that some air still gets in. Any advice?

I don't know what the 'rules" are, but I made one (the one in my avatar) on a Saturday night and took it in to work the following Monday aftrenoon and it was still fine. The cake inside was very moist... I used the 'durable' recepie on this site, the Buttercream Dream, and MMF.

It should be fine for a few days. The fondant will really help seal in the freshness!

I'm confuzzled.
My daughter and I have just made our first batch of MMF. If we complete the cake, using we store this in the fridge or on the counter?? We have used the Wilton fondant in the past and sometimes it breaks down and sometimes it didn't. We really have NO clue. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! icon_cry.gif
