So I just started decorating cakes with Wilton's fondant. Is there any tips to rolling out the fondant so it doesn't stick to the countertop? I've tried confectioners sugar, but that gets messy and I always get it on both sides of the fondant and can't get it off.

Thanks!! icon_sad.gif

i use cornstarch... just rub it onto the surface (and you hands, rollling pin, cutters) and it won't stick... HTH

You can also rub the rolling pin and surface down with shortening. I tend to use both sortening and powdered sugar...
