If you make your own fondant, how far in advance can you make it?

I have kept it much longer than that. I sort of judge by the date the marshmallows are "best used by". I also only use this for fondant decorations, not covering a cake. The MMF will get hard, but just soften it in the microwave for a few seconds until it is pliable again.
After I make my MMF, I smear Crisco around the outside of my fondant, double wrap in Cling Wrap/Saran Wrap, then store in an airtight container. I have never refrigerated mine before.
So sorry I didn't see this sooner. I crico mine, wrap In plastic rap, and then put in a ziploc bag and press all the air out
