Im attempting this recipe for the second time and Im hoping it goes better than the first. I have no doubt that I was careless the first time around and did something wrong based on all the reviews.
I have it wrapped up tightly on the counter now and will check it in 6-8 hours to see if it worked. I followed the directions to a T; measuring precisely, waiting for the mix to cool to luke warm before adding it to the PS, etc.
While I was kneading it, I noticed that it stayed rather sticky but it looked dry to the point that it was almost tearing (fingers crossed that later/tomorrow this has fixed itself). But I seem to have this issue with every fondant I make. No amount of PS added seems to help its tackiness but the more I add, the less pliable and cohesive it becomes. Ive tried added more glycerin but that just increases its stickiness.
The humidity in my home is consistently about 50% and the temp is about 75 degrees. Any thoughts on what might be happening or suggestions? I think Im going to invest in a dehumidifier but that wont help with the cake Im making this weekend
And thanks Michele for posting all of the tips!
