This is kinda silly but the wilton decorator icing says that its ready for decorating and its considered stiff consistency but when i try to make roses they are too soft almost like they are melting. What am I am doing wrong.
I would add some powdered sugar to it. I've never used it I make my own. Let us know what happens.
That icing is stiff right out of the tub, but the more you stir it, the softer it gets. I would suggest popping your icing bag in the frig for a few minutes if it's too soft, or you can blend in some icing sugar to stiffen it up a bit.
I'm currently in the Wilton classes and our instructor told us a few things about it- first, don't stir it too much because the more you stir the thinner it gets. Secondly, she said it'd work okay for a medium or thin consistancy but that although it claims otherwise, it's not stiff. I don't see why you couldn't add some 10x though like other post suggest! Good luck!!!
