Pour corn syrup and glycerin into gelatin mixture and stir until smooth. **if mixture is not turning smooth, microwave it for an additional 15 to 20 seconds on high and stir again**
In a large bowl, sift 3/4 of icing sugar and make a hole to pour liquid mixture into it.
Stir with a wooden spoon until mixture becomes sticky.
Sift and sprinkle some icing sugar onto your work surface and add as much of the remaining sugar as the mixture will take.
