I usually use Sugarshack's BC (but I have to use crisco instead of sweetex) but lately it won't crust for me! I am not sure if it is the heat or humidity or what! I have heard about adding corn starch or meringue powder, but haven't tried it yet. Any suggestions? I got a last minute cake order and have to get started! PLEASE HELP!!!! Thanks!
I add meringue poweder sometimes and that helps. Or sitting it in front of a fan. I hope it works out.
this happened to me too. I added more powdered sugar and it was fine. add a little liquid if needed after too
also toss it into the refrigerator for 15 minutes or so.
crusting is a ratio of fat to sugar ... if it's not crusting, add more sugar.
I've had the same problem lately and I use Crisco instead of hi-ratio in her recipe. You can add more sugar - once i had to add an extra pound. Or next time, use less liquid.
Ditto on the meringue powder.
