I don't normally use fondant but whenever i do, i find it picks up ANYTHING and doesn't look as clean as all of the cookies in the gallery. How do you handle working with fondant and not getting any specks or lint or whatever on it?
I roll it out on a clean board with a different rolling pin than what i use for rolling out cookies.
Try rolling it out in a marble pastry board (just for that use), maybe that would help.
Thank you. I was hoping not to have to buy anything for it since i don't use it much.
But i'll check them out the next time i'm at the store. Thanks again.
I clean out my granite counters with anti wipes and then with just the regular paper towel + water and then just paper towel. In the same order......
Then apply crisco on the counter and start off.....This way I dont find anything stuck to my fondant.....
You can also do it on any table which does not have desings...Good Luck!
I wash the counter, wipe it with a paper towel, and then rub a bunch of Crisco on it (because it seems like Crisco attracts every speck of ANYTHING flying through the air)...and then I wipe it off with a clean paper towel. Then I put down more Crisco, and roll it out. I have issues with fondant, but getting stuff in it isn't one of them.
Maybe it's not necessary, but I find that it works for me.
Thank you all for your advice. I never thought to smear Crisco on the counter after i've cleaned it thoroughly.
The most frustrating thing for me with using fondant are those mircroscopic specks of anything that it seems to attract no matter how much i clean off the rolling surface.
