I tried to make my first mmf covered and I completely gave up. The mmf wouldn't roll out. It would shrink back. I then added sugar and it would crack. I added crisco and it would shrink back again. Any idea what I did wrong? Your suggestions would mean a lot. icon_smile.gif

Theres always gonna be some shrinkage w/MMF, if its too tuff to roll out, just put in the microwave for a few seconds.
That shouold help out with the rolling. when your trimming make sure you give yourself some room for shrinkage. hth

I learned this from cc- add just a tad bit of corn syrup to the melted mm before putting in the p.sugar. 1 to 2 tblsp should do it, but not too much.
