That's weird. I mean it does harden up a little bit. But it should still be soft enough to eat since it's going on the cake. I've never had any trouble with it before.

hmmmm....strange! I haven't been working with it for that long, but I just ate some leaves made from Satin Ice (with a little Tylose) a month ago. They were hardened, but not so that you couldn't eat them easily. And I live in a very dry climate.

When you cover your cake with the fondant, the moisture of the bc and cake will help keep the fondant from getting "rock hard". It will still get firm, but not hard.

I love how it gets hard quickly for decorations. It won't get that hard on the cake though. Just a bit dry on the outside but definitely easy to cut through.
