Hi All,

So I have a load of fondant left over from previous projects, I sealed them in ziploc baggies, but they still dried up...

Any way to restore them to their original texture and pliability?

The only thing I would suggest is try coating them with veg. shortening (Crisco) and wrap in plastic wrap and return to sealed bag for a day or two. Then coat your hands with the shortening and try kneading it through. If that doesn't work, zap them a few seconds in the microwave. If it's hard and the shortening trick didn't help, then whats to loose to apply a bit of NUC-WAVES to it. LOL Good Luck

I always store my leftover fondant in a freezer baggie which I put into a airtight container - i.e. Tupperware.
Sometimes, I find that the edges might be hard. I usually cut them off and discard. Kneading the remaining fondant with a little Crisco works. The heat from your hands softens the fondant back to being pliable.
Good luck.

Work some glycerine into the fondant. This will soften it.
