When making fondant, I have read several posts that say to let it rest overnight. Do you put it in the fridge to rest or can it be on the counter? I am making the marshmallow fondant. Does it ever need to be refridgerated?

Hi, You can just wrap it really well and let it rest overnight on the counter and I have never had to refrigerate my MMF.

COver it with wrap twice and then put in a ziplock baggy.......always wait atleast 8 hours, next even better to use it.I found that out the hard way. Good luck. Its fun to make.

I make my own MMF sometimes in advance. To store it i just wrap it twice with cling wrap, put it in a zip lock bag then in a airtight container and just leave it in the pantry or on the bench and don't refrigerate it icon_smile.gif

p.s like madge said it is fun to make icon_smile.gif

The sugar is the preservative so you don't have to put it in the fridge.
