Thanks to everyone that helped me me out with all my questions. Finally my very very first fondant cake. It was a hit at the party and it tasted great. Did the yellow version of the WASC and the chocolate version. Filled with Buttersream and reasberry filling.

I have 2 batches of MMF left over I made 4 batches and didn't use all. Can i keep it for my sons 1st birthday cake on July 12th? Do I keep it in the refrigerator or can i keep it in an airtight container?

Check out my cake in my photos any tips and comments would be greatful for my next cake

Thanks again.

I've noticed when I leave MMF on the counter for a few weeks, it gets a sour smell. If I'm storing it for a while, I wrap the ziplock bag in foil and put it in the freezer.

I do like Texas Rose does - I freeze it ALL the time - I even make extra on the days Im making it so I can put it in the freezer for future us - You can freeze white or colored! Just wrap tight, pop it into a ziplock and make sure its airtight .. then when you need to use it, just pull whatever you need outta your ziplock - put on your counter for a few hours w/o unwrapping it from the plastic wrap - then use as normal ... the ONLY thing Ive found so far was my black, it seemed a little wetter than the others, so I just kneaded in a little cornstrach and it was fine icon_smile.gif

I just wanted to tell you how beautiful your cake turned out!! I'm also gearing up to make my very first MMF cake for my son's birthday on the 11th, and now I feel much more confident after seeing yours. I'm also planning a stacked cake, with circle cutouts and maybe a pearl border....

Yours looks wonderful! I hope mine turns out that good. icon_biggrin.gif
