My experience with MMF is it isn't going to set anytime soon.

Sounds like you wanted to use gumpaste. I think you can pick up gum-tex at Micheal's or somewhere and mix it in with the MMF and that should let it harden. Heard it doesn't taste to good though.

Or try using pastillage. You can flavor and color it. Like eating a Necco Wafer.

Hope it works out for you
