I tried to make jade colored MMF. It was really hard when I tried to roll it out so I put it in the microwave for about 30 secs to soften it up. I have the MAT that I use to roll it out on and when I did this is got stuck to the mat and didn't work : ( Any idea what I could have donr wrong? I did not hve a problem when I used a light yellow homemadr MMF

The adding coloring had added additional moisture. You can try adding more powdered sugar or even cornstarch.

You may have put it in the microwave too long as well - 10 secs at most at a time. What kind of mat are you using? Silicone works well. And some people like cornstarch to roll out fondant, but it has never worked for me. I use shortening. You can always add more icing sugar to un-goo it too!

Thanks for the advice! I bought the MAT and sweetwise.com. I guess I don't know what kind it is, but I have used it a few times and it works great. This time was my homemade fondant and it didn't work : ( I'm sure I put it in the microwave for to long : /
