Help!! How can I fix my batch of runny MMF?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I must have measured the sugar wrong, or added too many tablespoons of water ... my MMF is just not firm enough. It is very gooey! Is it possible to knead in powdered sugar or cornstarch to fix this ... or will that not fix it? Should I just dump the whole mess and start again?

Hope this hasn't been asked before, I checked but didn't see anything. Thank you!

edited to add: Made this MMF this morning, it has had all day to firm up a bit. Placed it in a ziploc gallon bag instead of saran wrap.

Definately, more powdered sugar will do the trick.

Thank you for your responses! Tried the powdered sugar and it worked great - not a problem. Made my first fondant roses tonight! Will try to post pics tomorrow.

Realized tonight that time is creeping up on me, this cake (which I am decorating in a hotel room) is due Saturday night and I might have to start baking tomorrow rather than Thursday morning. Still have to make 3 dozen fondant roses ..... bake & wrap all 3 tiers well for travel ... prepare 6 batches of buttercream ....pack myself, the kids, DH and all my cake dec stuff for staying 4 days in a hotel ... etc. Oh yes, and squeeze all this in between the kid's school and dance classes. AAAAACK!

How am I going to sleep tonight?? I need to take some deep breaths!!
