Do you use shortening or powdered sugar? Shortening makes is greasy and droopy; I cannot get the hang of fondant! icon_sad.gif

I use cornstarch, dusted on with a brush. You can roll your fondant on vinyl and then it doesn't take very much cornstarch to keep it from sticking.

If my fondant is sticky I add more confectioner's sugar. I prefer to use cornstarch when using gumpaste.
