I've always used cornstarch in mine too..I am aware of the heat with it so the science behind using it doesnt really make any sense but it was something I picked up from an old betty crocker cookbook.
are you doing this by hand?

it does make sense to start with the first five though when I look at it...so it really could just be things didnt have time to gather air to stiffen everything up in the end.

Iogato, put corn starch on your grocery list. It is very inexpensive, but oh so handy to have when you need it.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

These tips about adding corn starch are quite helpful--I'll have to try it next time I face this problem. Thanks, experts!
