I have alot of trouble with mmf. I like to use it to cover cakes because of the taste, But for any stand up decorations its way too soft. like making bows or things on wires sticking out.... Is there any way to get this to harden more? I made numbers and let them set for like 3 days and they still were soft. what am I doing wrong?

If you ad some Tylose to it that should help it to dry faster..

if you have it, a small amount of tylose will help it harden. If you roll it out using cornstarch, it will also help it hold its' shape.
