It seems when I use Satin Ice fondant, I have to use a good amount of powdered sugar so it doesn't stick. So much remains on the fondant and a pastry brush doesn't take it all off. It looks really bad, especially on black and red. Any suggestions?

try airbrushing vodka or everclear, that usually works.

good luck

Rub the fondant with a little crisco and that will remove the residue and then go back over with a clean paper towel to remove any excess crisco. Then the fondant will have a nice sheen to it.

I roll mine on Pam, not powdered sugar and I never have a problem with sticking or marks on final product.

I avoid the mess of powders altogether by rolling my SI out on a piece of vinyl or silicone rubbed with a smear of crisco.

I never have sticking, stretching, or elephant skin issues, either--and, when I'm done, I'm done, so I don't have to rub it or spray it.
