yeah that is kind of whatI was figuring. the only thing I don't like about mmf is it tends to go stiff even in an airtight container and can be difficult to work with if you have to store it and don't useit right away. plus it dries very quicly which is a downside when I am trying to work with my models .... I think I may just purchase one tub to make my daughter's b-day cake and also the cake for my neighbor's daughter and see what I think. I would make some and store it to use later but I just find mmf is more difficult to work with and you have to microwave it to soften it up if you don't use it right away.
I think you might be putting too much powdered sugar in yours... I never have any problems with drying - in fact, it never dries quick enough for me! LOL!
I always have about a cup or so left from a 2 lb bag of PS. Maybe you should play around with it.
Also, I store mine in ziplock bags and have NEVER had them dry out. I was shocked that 3 month old fondant was just as soft as the day I made it.
