1st....BREATHE! there IS an answer 2nd...yes, adding more sugar will make it stickier.use the cornstarch or even use shortening. from what i know pettinice is pretty soft/stretchy like you said. you MAY want to get some Wilton fondant and just mix some of that in to get it workable (50/50)...along with a bit more shortening. GOOD LUCK!
i didn't see anything about a center dowel in the OP post either.IF their wasn't a center dowel then a refund would be a MUST.Ask to see pictures, if not. You can tell if it was a matter of structural issues or someone slamming on the breaks with how the cake looks in the box.also, are they ASKING for a refund or just said it feel apart?
if you've never done the above before, it can be slightly risky.if you are just doing regular white/ivory fondant...I just use some buttercream for any holes or imperfections and no one can notice the difference after using a hot knife to smooth it out
also, if you are shocked at your sticker price...you may need to change your design a little. a quote is a quote...the pricing can always go down if take some elements away, but you have to communicate your budget to the decorator.

you are seriously going to say that for someone that has inquired from over seas...wow. that's pretty risky for someone that is just under cottage food law, they could loose EVERYTHING. i don't think that advice pertains here
omg! i would never have given out ANY information! when someone is making a payment everything should come to you and you should have to do NO work. Please tell me you've checked all of your accounts? I am sure that this may be a silly question...but you just never know now days.
you also need to price for your area... I think starting at $3 a serving is good for fondant covered in your area.
I <3 Nurse Practitioners my husband and I are sick today and are soo very THANKFUL that he is attending a university with a health and counseling center.
