Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

My mom and I have made a lot of MM fondant, but we always get the little white powdered sugar balls in it and it takes FOREVER to pick them out. We have waited overnight and re-kneeded it... added teaspoons of water....sifted the powdered sugar in... still those terrible sugar balls. the weird thing is, the very first batch i made didn't have them, and i have not changed anything. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Do you sift the sugar first? That should get rid of the little balls.
I use Walmart brand sugar for this reason, I've never had to sift it and I don't get the little balls.
yes, we have sifted... still get balls....i think walmart brand sugar is what i used the first time when i didn't get the balls! wow! could that be it? and why that brand? thanks!
