Take another piece of fondant and flatten it a bit then use it to rub over the fondant on your cake. Usually that works for me if rubbing with my hands doesn't.

I've used a damp brush to go over it and it takes the ps off and gives it a little shine. I took a class with Bronwen Weber this weekend and she said that she mists all of her fondant-covered cakes with vodka and it takes it off and give s a little shine. If you don't have a mister, you can brush it on.

One thing I do to not have that problem is to just use shortning to roll the fondant out (instead of powdered sugar) works like a charm, and absolutely no dust on the fondant when the cake is done.
