I made my first batch of rolled BC yesterday following the recipe that has been posted around here lately.
It's looking really weird and broken...I tried to roll a little and it fall apart.

Am I missing something?
I was planning to use tomorrow for a cake, but I guess I need a plan B now.

Yep I'd like to find out too, that's what mine looked like too

When mixing it, only add enough sugar to make it pliable (sometimes it doesn't require the amount stated). As for now, perhaps if you add a bit more liquid and knead thoroughly again, it may save the batch.

I'll try that, thank you PJ37.

I agree with PJ37. Whenever I have things that look dry and cracked, it's usually because I've added too much sugar. With the RBC, you might try adding some more corn syrup. That might work better than liquid.
