I am wondering if it is OK to make several batches of MMF ahead of time just to have in inventory. I have a cake coming up this Saturday, so I made the MMF last weekend (and colored it red and black). It is wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, and put in an air-tight bowl with a lid, in the fridge. I also made several batches of uncolored, just to have around for those last-minute cakes that always seem to come up. Does anyone know how long MMF lasts stored like this? Thanks!

I have never refrigerated mine! I wrap it tightly with a rub of Crisco, and in a tupperware container. I've had mine for several months.
When I chop off a piece that I need, I nuke it for about 10 seconds and it's perfect. Just did this last night with a cake.

I do like vickymackd, and have good results a month or so later when I take it out of the tupperware......

I never freeze my MMF. I coat in shortening wrap tightly in a couple layers of plastic wrap and put inside an airtight bag. I leave at room temperature and have used it after 1 month, it tastes and works fine.
