Sorry bernice I can't really help you in your question. But when I attempt making figurines using marshmallow fondants, I do not put them in the fridge as they will start to 'sweat'.

I'm not familiar with sugar paste as well. Usually I just make decorations out of marshmallow fondants.

we tried both rolled fondant recipe and marshmellow fondant recipe today.

I have experimented with MMF by putting it in the fridge..and taking it out..it didn't melt or sweat like the rolled fondant.

the cake I did for my daughter's birthday last week was done in MMF. The funny thing is I left it out, it sweats or wets the whole day. I wonder if the weather has anything to do with it? It was rainy the whole day.

after we cut the cake, we have left 4 slices with the MMF too. I left it in the fridge. The MMF was solid and rock hard..and it was very dry.

Gina,

When I made the bearry in love figurines, and roses, I place them in my cake caddy. Then the next day I brought it to work with me. I had the air cond in the car on the whole journey. Then you know there's like drops of water on the container due to the air cond.

When I reached office, I notice that the roses started to sweat...Wonder why though..

After that, I decided to keep the bear in a dry container on the table and
put it at home. After few days, it was rock hard.

Regards...May

Bunnywoman from Wilton's forum has replied another forumer that marshmallow fondants do not need to be refrigerated unless if the weather is very hot. I'm posting the link here for all to read. May be quite useful. Hope you dont mind Gina.

I just cannot figure out this. I left some of the leftover fondant I did for my daughter's cake.

it didn't sweat. but I do know that if I did the sugar paste(rolled fondant) recipe, it will sweat even when its inside the fridge.

this MMF fondant, didn't sweat when its inside the fridge.

May I ask how long and where shall I keep the MMF? Is it ok if I leave it out in ziploc bag but at room temperature for a week or so?

Thanks,
Wendy C

yes..i kept mine for over 3 weeks. i kept it in a plastic bag, tied it. Then into a plastic container. It will turn hard over time. To reuse, I just zap in the MW oven for 15 secs.
