I have been reading quite a few posts now and everyone says not to put gumpaste or fondant in the fridge. I have only been doing this as a hobby for about a year, and only been working with fondant/gumpaste for a couple of months now. Whenever I have to mold or make something, I let it harden, put it on my cake and put them in the fridge. I haven't noticed any change or anything going wrong with it. This could be a stupid question but what are the downsides to putting them in the fridge? I would really like to know before I do something stupid at the wrong time.Thanks in advance for clueing me in.

maybe these links are giving you some help. I'm also not an pro in decorating and as I'm not an engl. native speaker it's easier for you to get a post linked, than to understand my funny english icon_wink.gif
