First off I should tell everyone that though the ingredients to this recipe are correct the instructions are too vague. The original creator of this recipe is much more detailed in her description of what to do. The first two steps are pretty close to the original but when Suzy means lukewarm it should be more specifically around 120 F, this will take around half an hour to reach. And I believe the main reason most people are having trouble with it setting up is because they are not beating it long enough. You first off all need a stand mixer (heavy duty is the best) because the mixture is so thick. Then you beat on a medium speed until it loses its gloss like she said, however the proper loss of gloss comes after about 7-10 minutes of continuous beating (another good reason to use a stand mixer). The end result will be an attractive pale tan color, pretty much a few shades darker than an eggshell white. I hope people take my advice and try this recipe again because it really is a good one, if only the instructions were a bit more specific.
