I am making a cake tonight for tomorrow and thought I would be proactive and make my MMF earlier in the week...thing is I seem to have made it a little too early. It won't stick together Do I have to make another batch or is there a way to make it useable again????
Any help at all would be appreciated.
Have you tried putting it in the microwave for a little while to make it more pliable?
I did put it in for 30 seconds at 50% but that did not do anything. I also tried just taking a little at a time and kneeding it but it still did not stick....
When you say "did not stick" do you mean it's hard? Did you coat it in shortening and wrap it up tightly in plastic wrap after you made it?
At first it will seem hard, but microwaving it in 10 second intervals full power and then kneed, kneed and kneed some more. You may have to add a little bit of Crisco/shortening to soften it up some.
microwave it for like 15 seconds, less if its a small amount, more if its a larger amount. and knead it like the pp said.
I had the same problem a few months ago and was going to give up on using MMF buuut today I did my first fondant covered three tiered cake with MMF and the microwave did the trick!
