So I bought a bottle of wilton glycerine to make Michelle Fosters Fondant (havn't yet) but on the bottle it says "Restores consistency of icing colors". What exactly does that mean/how do you use it?

Thank you!

If you color gets a little too stiff, add some glycerin to restore it. Start with a little and you can keep adding.

It's like trying to restore your nail-polish when it dries out too much.

My understanding is that it also helps with pliability when added to MMF. I didn't initially use it when I started making MMF, but once I started, I never stopped. It makes it much easier to work with in my opinion!
