hayaa everyone
im new to cake making and decortaing, and i really enjoy it.
However i have recently started to use fondant icing, though when i try to cover an 8" cake for example, i role the icing out, on top of a surface covered in icing sugar, though it still sticks to the unit icon_sad.gif
anyone know any tips to help me solve this matter?
thank you icon_smile.gif

you might want to try using cornstarch or shortening. icing sugar will make it more sticky.

i don't know where you're from and what you have available there, but you can buy clear vinyl from a fabric store by the yard. If you roll the fondant on that (I usually use some shortening on it) then flip it onto the cake, then peel the vinyl off! It's great!

My only issue with this method is storing the vinyl without making any creases in it, because then you have creases/wrinkles in your fondant too!
