I developed my own recipe for chocolate MMF and it is VERY pliable, rolls VERY well and VERY smoothly. Basically it's doing everything right EXCEPT when I go to cover a cake with it, and then it cracks all along the top edge of the cake. It's not like it's totally tearing, more like a lot of small (unsightly) cracks all along.

What is WRONG here????? I don't understand how it can be SO pliable, and easy to work with while it's on the table, but then cracks when I put it on the cake?

Can someone please help me??!!!
