are you wanting to make figures or something with the fondant as to why you want to firm it up?

I am actually wondering about this too, I love MMF, but for me it seems to droop a bit after I get it onto a cake. Meaning, even if I cut right close to the cake, when I come back to it later to decorate, I have to cut the edge off again because it is longer than the side of the cake. I am afraid if I knead more PS into it, it will crack.
