This may be a silly question, but I am pretty new to this! I rolled out a big piece of fondant to cover an 11X15X2 cake. Today it is pouring and humid so I needed to use quite a bit of powdered sugar to keep it from sticking. I got the fondant on the cake, but it is bright blue with splotches of powdered sugar all over it! How do I get rid of the powdered sugar?

Hi - take a papertowel and dab it in shortening and rub the entire surface, it will be shiny at first and then the fondant will absorb the shortening and dry out again.

the spots should go away.. disolving into the fondant. Sometimes I take a damp cloth or paper towel and go over those areas lightly to get the powdered sugar to disolve...
