2 tsp vanilla (sometimes I use more)
3-4 lb powdered sugar, sifted (at least once)
*note all tablespoons and teaspoons are level, not heaped (had a question about this from another CCer)
Mine didn't either. I tried the updated one and it didn't work either. I have learned over the 3 or so years of making it the feel and texture that works and I use the same version that you use.
I have a couple of questions:
If you say it was like a ball of rubber how much glycerin did you add. The 6 tsp or did you use 3 packs?
How warm was your liquid when adding it? If it's too warm you could add too much powdered sugar and that would make it too hard to deal with.
How much powdered sugar did you add, 2 full two lb bags or about 1 and a half?
I know that this may sound stupid but did you try to knead it? I am asking because sometimes mine feels a little stiff when I first start out and I will put it in the microwave. No more than 10 seconds at a time for a ball of it and that will help alot.
Once again don't give up !!
