AHello Everyone - I'm a Newbie on this site And a Newbie at cake baking/decorating. My 16 year old daughter & I are hoping to start our own small business. :)

My Question: How long can marshmallow fondant be stored and reused??? I have several colored chunks double wrapped in plastic wrap and double bagged in zip lock bags.

Thank you.

ABefore it actually goes bad, the consistency of it will change and make it un workable. I would suggest just giving it a test..if it's workable you're good to go :)

Depends.  Sooner or later you'll open up one of the colored packages and will see darker blotches of that same color.  Toss it out.  But I keep extra white MMF in greased Ziploc bags in a closed container in my cold basement and it seems to last at least a month or two.  I tend to use the leftovers to cover Styrofoam dummies.

AI am also a newbie here. :) I have kept my fondant triple wrapped in plastic and in a ziploc bag for about six weeks with no problems with taste or consistency! Good luck with your business venture.
