I'm having a hard time storing my leftover fondant so it won't dry hard. I put them back into the plastic bag & container after I open the bucket but most of the time it starts to crush. I tried zip lock bags & etc. Does anyone know of a certain plastic bag to keep them soft.
thank you

we use ziploc bags, then store them in a airtight bucket. if they dry out, just add some shortening to bring them back to life

Roll what you have into a log and apply some shortening to it.
Wrap it in plastic wrap, a couple of layers, and then store it in a zip loc bag with as much air pushed out of it as you can do. If you aren't going to use it for a while stick it in the freezer and thaw at least a day before you need it. Of course the time would depend of how much you are thawing.

The best investment I ever made was buying a Foodsaver. I live in Colorado and it's very, very dry. I wrap fondant in plastic wrap, toss it in a bag and that's it. Like new fondant every time!
