ok, so.....I would love to make many cakes using plain white fondant but I ALWAYS seem to get something in it! Whether it is little black flecks of dust or a tiny fuzz or something! It always makes me stay clear of white. Does anyone have any tricks for this? I keep my work area super clean and I also clean my roller very well(just bought a white fondant roller for this reason) and still I have trouble. help! There has to be a secret!

also, what works better for non stick fondant.......icing sugar or corn starch??

I also use vegatable shortening to prevent mine from sticking.

I prefer corn starch. Make sure you wear something light colored and you wipe your hands on something light colored before handling your fondant to avoid transfering flecks from your clothing or towels.
