Same here.

couple of questions though:
- What recipe are you using?
- Is it to soft to begin with to use what you want to use it for?
- or is it to soft still after being sit out to dry for so long?
- If so, how long have you left it to sit out to dry?
- what is the weather like there?
- What is it drying on?

Add more PS one teaspoon at a time till you get the consistency you want. One time I put too much water in. I had a double batch on my mind, but was only making a single. ::palms forehead::

I'm trying to make Royal flowers - too soft to begin with - will not hold shapes - very humid & drying on flower formers.

How long did you beat it? When it's humid, sometimes it takes 15 minutes or more.
