My stiff bci isn't so stiff

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I can't seem to get my bci "stiff" enough. I'm new to all of this & my answer is probably common sense. Can anyone lend a suggestion?

Just add more powdered sugar to it. It will thicken up. Just add about a tablespoon at a time. It will work~

Once you make BCI a few times you'll be a pro! So don't let it discourage you~

Also, if you're not using meringue powder, you might try adding a tablespoon.....I live in a humid area and without the meringue powder, I can't get mine stiff enough either.
