Birthday Cake Fudge Tips

How do you store fudge?

Have leftovers? Storing fudge is simple. Place birthday cake fudge in an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place for about a week. If you're looking to keep it fresh for longer, fudge is a good food to freeze. Wrap the fudge tightly and freeze for up to a year.

How do I keep the baking melts from seizing?

A drop or two of water can cause your baking melts to seize and the batter can become gritty. To prevent this, make sure your mixing bowl and tools are completely dry.

What are some other birthday fudge variations?

Fudge recipes, like this one, are easy to customize. If you're making this recipe as a gift, change up the sprinkles to suit the theme or the party or a person's favorite colors. You can also experiment by adding different chopped nuts or dried fruits into the mix.
