Hi, I usually sprinkle some corn flour on the surface where I want to roll my MMF. My problem is that the corn flour is "staining" the MMF. I've tried to remove it in many ways but it's only getting worse.
A few months ago someone posted a topic about how to remove the corn flour from MMF. I totally forgot her advice, and I can't find it anymore.
Can someone please help?!??!
Thanks a lot.
I always use powdered sugar. You can just lightly dust it off with your hands, and you'd never know it was there. Always works for me!
My mmf does'nt stick to my counter but I put a little bit of crisco on it before I roll it out.
i use powdered sugar to roll out my mmf. but you can try to brush it with lemon extract.
I've seen where people put vodka in their airbrushes to clean off powdered sugar/corn flour. I don't have an airbrush yet, so I can't say from personal experience that it works, but it always works on TV!
also, i meant to add, i use a big plastic mat from the craft section in walmart, to roll out my fondant. one of my friends bought it for me. i use crisco to knead it real good, then powdered sugar. hth!
Thanks for all your answers. It seems all of you use powdered sugar on the rolling surface. I've tried it many times, but the MMF keeps on absorbing the sugar and ends up stuck to the surface!!!
Denae: Is the plastic mat you use, the Wilton's Roll and Cut mat or something similar??
I use the fun with Fondant mat by Wilton, I think it's great. I use powdered sugar to roll it out, don't have much of a problem with sticking, as long as you keep it moving, if it starts to get stuck on a move, you can find out fast and add more sugar so it doesn't get completely stuck and ruined.
If you roll it out with a little bit of Crisco on the pin and rolling board you don't have that problem.
Thanks a lot for your answers again.
I tried to do it with powdered sugar, it was far better than the corn flour, but it still showed on the fondant!! I tried brushing it with a dry brush, but traces were still showing. As for using shortening, it makes the fondant so shiny, and most of the time I need it to be normal.
krazykat_14: I bought the Fun with Fondant mat yesterday, but still didn't use it. Can you roll the fondant on it, and just flip it on the cake to ensure that the fondant doesn't get distorted while being transproted to the cake?
Thanks again for your help.
