Made some icing today using powdered sugar, evaporated milk, Sweetex, unsalted butter, and vanilla. (Strange recipe, I know....)

Anyway while icing a cake I found a few random pieces that looked like a small lump of unmixed shortening. Weird, because my shortening was pretty soft today. I don't know how it could have been shortening.

I picked a few out and it seemed waxy...almost like a soft edible wax. No flavor, not offensive...but didn't really melt...I could rub it away in my fingers but if I put it in my mouth, it didn't necessarily melt. It was not hard, but fairly soft.

There wasn't enough to really worry about....any small lumps under the fondant are going to be left behind with the fondant OR eaten along with the cake.

But I wish I could figure out what it is!!!! My only guess is something in the Sweetex (its a fairly new case...only used it for two cakes, but this is the first time I've noticed it, today.)

Oh well.
