I've never used this exact recipe, but a similar one in one of my books calls for up to 4 tblsp of vegetable shortening in addition to the other ingredients. I'd try kneading it in a tablespoon at a time to see if it softens before I'd throw the whole batch out. (I've also had to do this to pre-packaged GP & it seems to do the trick.) Good luck!

I got a cricut cake and it had mentioned microwave it for 5 seconds to soften. I don't know if this will help you or not just wanted to shareicon_smile.gif
