AIndexed? Is that kneaded or mixed? LOL. Is is MMF MFF or some other kind? Are lumps or spots or coloring or powdered sugar? I'd love to help if I can!

AWhat I think happened was the flooring was not 100% dissolved.

AThe flooring? Was it tile, vinyl or hard wood? Lmbo! Just kidding, I assume that was gelatin or marshmallow... Either way, the best you can do is start over, and sieve it with a fine screen when it is in the melted stage before the sugar goes in. Press it through with a rubber or silicone spatula. The lumps will remain.

Right now, there is noting to do but pick them all out, or throw it out.

AFunny story, made some gorgeous supple fondant that was so good and really just a dream. Then I put a big wad of Americolor hot pink in it, with some tylose to make a bow. I kneaded the crap out of it forever but there were black spots in it! I assumed they were spots of color that mixed with tylose and I royally messed it up, but after I finally picked about 30 of them out, I realized there were tiny little hair like pieces also, and took a closer look and saw the dots were segments of ants!! I didn't know where they came from, and after searching the counter and shelf and bag and bowl and started to flip, because there was nothing there!! I finally squeezed some hot pink out onto a styrofoam plate and spread it around to look in it and BINGO! The ants were in it! Brand new bottle, the label was really easy to tear off when I got it though... Obviously, I threw it and the fondant out.

AThat's a first! I also have to say that everyone should turn your autocorrects off!
