This in only my second time working with fondant and it has been a chalange for me. Now I finally have the dress covered with the fondant but it is all dusty with corn starch. What do I do? I have tried brushing it off but I am just pressing the fondant into the cake. Please help me ASAP. I just want to finish this thing!!!!!
I just use a pastry brush very lightly brushes it off without paressing the fondant hth
Dusting with a clean, dry pastry brush should solve the problem. It is recommended that you don't turn the fondant over after you've started to roll it out, to prevent this problem. (It still happens. I've resorted to lightly coating my hands with Crisco and rubbing them over the fondant. Not the best solution, tho.)
Thanks for the help. I ended up using a small soft paint brush and lightly brushed it. It helped but it is still a little dusty, oh well. I will have to remember not to flip it over next time. I was just happy after killing my fondant last night with trying to roll it out about 7 times. (It kept sticking.) I had to make a new batch MMF this time. I only had to roll it out twice. It is MMF all the time for me for now on!!! Unless someone can give me some tips for how to keep regular fondant from sticking. I used Toba's recipe but it just did not work well. Thanks!
give it a light rub down with crisco and wipe off the excess; it will be shiny for a while but all absorb back in after a couple of hours.
I lightly wipe it clean with a clean, dry wash cloth. Just like with your small paintbrush, it didn't get 100% of it off, but it looked better than what it was after I put the fondant on the cake.
