I was given about 5 pounds of fondant a friend made for a wedding cake, after I told her I read that bees can be fed fondant. But...is it safe to feed this type of fondant to the bees? (standard cake fondant)

Well you need to know what was put into the mix. If it has corn starch in it it may not bee good for the bees. I know you said it is standard but just to be sure I would ask what was put into it. If it has corn starch in it I would wait till the bees can fly out on warm days. The starch makes them need to releave themselves more often.
