I wonder if my recipe makes a difference. I'll need to know this so I can specify that while teaching the method. Give me your recipes so I can try it out. I've had no problem with it and a few others that have tried the method have not either.
Cookieman- you used my recipe over the weekend. If you have even a tiny bit left, can you experiment with the corn syrup for me? Maybe it's a climate thing. Maybe it's a brand of corn syrup issue or the brand of icing colors. But we definitely need to get to the bottom of this before I encourage more people to try it.
If a few other people can test it out with any left over buttercream they have I would appreciate it. For those that have not read the instructions, just take a couple tablespoons of icing, tint it, mix with equal parts clear corn syrup and give me the results. If it works for you or not, I need to know. Give me your bc recipe and brands of corn syrup and icing coloring.
Thanks so much!
