how do you get all of your corn starch or confec sugar off your fondant cakes after they are done. I dont love my method (clean with damp brush, hate waiting for it to dry) and was wondering if those with super clean fondant have a trick. Do you not use cs or ps?
Good question...I was gonna ask that next! LOL!!!! I have a dark brown fondant covered cake....that is currently white from the sugar!HA!!!!
If you roll it on a vinyl sheet you can get by with using a lot less cornstarch. Also, dust it off as much as possible with a clean pastry brush before you put it over the cake.
When you go over it with a damp brush, do you have water or vodka on it? I use vodka and it dries fast.
Vodka, why did I not think of that? Thanks. happy to hear other tricks as well. So grateful for the help I recieve here on cc.
First, I brush it off as much as possible, then I use my airbrush with vodka or water. Either one works fine. That way there's no chance of the damp brush leaving brush marks on the fondant. However, I just started using Fondarific and you don't have to use ANY powdered sugar. WooHoo!! I love that stuff!! Happy baking!
You can also rub the fondant with crisco and will take all of the ps or cs off and give you a very nice finish.
