I RECENTLY MADE A FEW BATCHES OF MMF. THE LAST BATCH I MADE DIDNT COME OUT AS THE PREVIOUS ONES. THE FIRST ONES CAME OUT NICE AND PLIABLE. I DIDNT DO ANYTHING DIFFERENT TO THE LAST BATCH AND ITS NOT STRETCHY. I KNEADED IT BUT WHEN I STRETCH IT OUT IT BREAKS OFF RT AWAY. CAN THIS MMF BE SAVED? IF SO HOW OR WHAT CAN I DO? I WRAPPED IT AND PUT IT IN THE FRIDGE THINKING IT WILL GET BETTER. WAS THAT THE RT THING TO DO SINCE ITS NOT PLIABLE/STRETCHY?

I think refrigerating it will only make it stiffer. You can knead in corn syrup, shortening, or glucose to help with pliability. You could add water, too; but that usually ends up a sticky mess for me.

This all depends on what recipe you used, of course.

Try adding some Wilton Glycerin. It works beautifully for me!

I always just pop mine in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to soften it when it's not stretchy.
