Hi Aces of Cakes Fans,
Last Summer, when our kitchen was being remodelled, I made some fondant cookies, using Duff's fondant & cookie cutters; at 1st, I made them just to snack on, just to see if it would work. I then made some for the volunteers at the Snowline Hospice Thrift Store, then made several for my trip to Atlanta; they were popular & some wanted to know how I made them, so I told them. I made some during the Fall months, then left it alone, till I wanted to use them again.
This past Holiday season, when I was making different kinds of butter cookies, I looked at the fondant to see if I wantede to use it; I noticed some spots on it & thought, `Hmmmmm, may be I can get the spots out & still use it. I then forgot about it & wondered if it's still good; I do plan on checking it out, getting rid of any spots, then see if it's any good for me to use. If so, then I'll use it & put it in the refrig (or freezer), till I use it again; if not, I'll throw it out, get some more & put any unuseab le portions in the freezer.
I'd like to know your thoughts on this & any suggestions you may have; also, I'd like to know what kinds of things you create with the fondant & what you do with the portions you have left.
