I don't know what is going on with my mmf. I make it all the time..never have I had this problem. It is like little hard acne spots all in it. It is obviously the sugar but I don't know why!!!!
I have that happen every once in a while. When it does happen, I just let it sit longer wrapped in plastic wrap with shortening on it, and then after a few hours, I knead it really well. It usually gets the lumps of sugar out. HTH!!!
You can also try putting it in the microwave for 10 second intervals (after you let it sit overnight if it's still lumpy)....then kneed. It should smooth right out for ya.
Just be careful when you begin kneeding it there could be *hot* spots from the microwave.
Thanks you guys. I have it wrapped and coated in crisco (well vice versa lol). I will try to smooth it out some more in the morning.
Did you sift your powdered sugar. I usually shake mine through a metal mesh collinder. (I think I spelled that right). Sometimes depending on your area, your sugar can clump up from the humidity. Sifting it will usually take care of this problem.
