i've recently been covering my cakes with fondant and i'm ejoying it. but theres one problem. how do you get rid of corn starch marks of your fondant. i recently covered a cake with red fondant and it had cornstarch everywhere which gave it a dusty look. can anyone give advice on how to take it off?
I usually rub it off with a paper towel or use a pastry brush.
A LITTLE RUB DOWN ITH CRISCO
Is the cornstarch to keep it from sticking?
i use my airbrush and lightly spray the whole cake with a little vodka - i try to brush it off with a fluffy paintbrush, but sometimes I have a few stubborn spots. the vodka does the trick and dries pretty quickly.
I am so glad someone asked this question! I just figured it came with practice. I'm going to try the Crisco tomorrow. Will it leave it with a shiny look?
it will be shiny for a little while and then look normal and pretty!
thanks for everyones replys. just wanted to see how i shoud rub the cake with crisco? with my fingertips or with something else. also when you say crisco do you mean vedgtable shortening?can it be done useing margerine?
shortening with a paper towel, take off excess. it will all absorb in in a little while and look great!
I rub a little crisco it work fantastic.
