Are you covering a cake with it?

I would like to know why you're putting water in it? If it's too dry add some Crisco. If it's too "wet" put some ps---I usually do a T at a time if it's close to being just right.

You could also put some cornstarch in it if it's too dry.

Like the previous post...you didn't put water in it when you were making it, did you??? Every recipe I've ever seen, including the one that I use, has never calles for water. That might be the problem.

I agree with the other. Don't put in any water. Put powdered sugar if it is too sticky and crisco if it's too dry. One thing I noticed when I do mine is it kind of softens and looks better after it sits. Maybe let it rest a while then try again.

I don't know if I would use cornstarch. I might be afraid it would affect the taste & texture. I think I would stick to PS. Have better luck yet?
