There is nothing like the excitement of opening a fresh bucket of fondant when decorating a cake! However, there is also nothing like the frustration of opening a container only to find old, dried-out fondant when you’re finally ready to cover a perfectly iced cake. Dried out fondant is difficult to work with and often results in chunks of sugar, a lumpy surface, and tearing!
