Storing fondant / gumpaste ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys--

 

So- I'm so frustrated- every time I try and store left over fondant/gumpaste it gets rock hard-- I have tried a few ways- cling wrap- ziplock - containers--

 

How do you guys store your fondant and gumpaste so that it stays soft?

2 or 3 layers of cling wrap AND a ziplock

I squeeze as much air out of the ziplock as I can

I save the 2 and 5 lb containers that store bought fondant come in.  (I always buy my black and red.)  I keep the bags as well.  Store it inside and use masking tape to write what color is in the container.  For small amounts, I double wrap with cling wrap, then a zip lock. I keep all of them in a rubbermaid container.

I rub mine down with a thin layer of Crisco and double wrap in cling wrap then in a freezer zip lock bag, sucking all the air out through a straw. Then I store it in the refrigerator. If I've made a full recipe, I divide it up into smaller portions as above then freeze.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
