I made the fondant recipe from the confetti cakes book. It was great I thought all was going well and it said it should some to a sticky ball in my mixer and it said using the paddle. All it did was paste around the sides of the bowl. It said to start with a total of 9 cups icing sugar and only put 6 in the bowl and when it got to a sticky ball dump it out and knead in the remaining 3 cups which I thought was alot. Where did I go wrong maybe I didnt let it mix enough in the mixer. The nI got about 2 more cups of sugar in the fondant and I thought it felt good. Well I went to use it and it was a terrible, all dry feeling and not stretchy. I had to a a lot of crisco to it and it still didnt feel like it should. I hate MMF and this is what it felt like. HELP!!
