Hi everyone, I have some fondant I bought last Halloween. Some aren’t opened and some are. The ones that are were are wrapped tightly and everything is stored in a cool clean place in a container. The best before date was May this year ( so 5 months past ) I opened them up and colour taste and smell was fine. Just kneaded it for a little and it was normal consistently. Is it still safe to use? It’s just for sugar cookies for myself and the family. Thank you in advance: )
I’m the kind of person who not hesitate to use it... you said it looks & small fine... & it’s for family only sooo go ahead. The important thing is your nose:)
Lol! Yes, I’m usually the same! My OCD always needs me to get a second opinion! Thank you : )
I agree. I've had fondant for years and if it is kept well sealed, it seems to last forever. Of course, I am using it for sculptures and not consumption, so if it works well, I use it. The worse thing that I've seen happen to fondant is that it drys out and becomes hard. I guess it might mold, if the humidity was high, but I've never had any to mold.
Yes, it really does seem to last forever, especially if it’s well sealed! We had the biscuits tonight and they were fine a so yummy! Thank you everyone : )
