Try some fondant melted in the microwave for eight seconds, I add just a small blob about the size of a walnut and a few drops of water. You can re micro it quite a few times but not longer than eight seconds, and don't touch it with your fingers

Me, too. I keep some colors on hand and mix a few candy melts together to sort of match the fondant.

I like the chocolate because you get some working time, but when it's set, it's SET.
