It needs to "rest". As it rests, the excess sugar lumps will dissolve.

Hi,

I posted a question on this last week
http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopicp-6530644-.html#6530644

I think part of my problem was putting the MM in too hot. This past Friday I made a batch and let it cool just a little before sugar touched it and it seemed to be fine... just a couple lumps.

All the other suggestions were fantastic though... using new sealed sugar, letting it set overnight, sifting, wishing upon the fondant fairy. icon_smile.gif

Hope that helps a little icon_smile.gif
