I just started using my new molds and thought I can make fondant decorations way in advance of my baby shower .
only thing is we're in February and my baby shower is in may I was wondering if they would go bad if I made them now ?
I have home made marshmallow fondant as well as store brand colors
does the marshmallow fondant mold faster? Or itll be okay to work with. Should I use store bought instead ?
thank you in advance [postimage id="2588" thumb="900"]
Hi there! Fondant won't go bad (mmf is pretty much all sugar so it will last forever) but it will get hard over time. So, it depends on if your guests will be eating these decorations. If no one will be eating them then go ahead and make them whenever.
Just an idea though......I've never done it, but you could try to test freeze a few and see how they come back to room temp.
If that doesn't work, you should wait.
Thank you! Good to know
I hope they eat them hehe are hey not edible
I make mine and after letting them air dry for 24 hours or so, I put them in a Tupperware container in tissue paper they hold up beautifully and can still be eaten because they don't get rock hard. Longest I've kept any is about 5 months. Hope this helps! Oh and congratulations!!
Yeah, I make mine up as early as I have time. If you want them hard store them in cardboard, if you want them still chewable store them in plastic boxes or even ziplocks. I have preserved toppers after the cake was eaten (because they were cute and I couldn't bear to throw them away yet) for many months and they looked just like they did when I first made them.
I wouldn't freeze them. When you take them out, the condensation will make them sticky and gooey. (Yuck). :-) You can definitely make them now. Even if they are hard, they are still edible. I don't know why you would want to though. They are pure sugar.Just make them, let them air dry, and store in a dry place in a zip bag or plastic container. Good luck.
