Consistency is the key. If the mixture is too dry, try adding few more drops to it. But remember, each DROP counts. A slight imbalance can douse the entire mixture.



After you have mastered the consistency stage, whip the mixture, faster, slowly, and at regular intervals, until the sugar dissolves, leaving no lumps. The blend should look thick.
