I made my template, colored and rolled out my fondant. I cut my letter with a blade and when I tried to lift it from the mat, it distorted and stretched. What am I doing wrong?
What I usually do is let it sit there for a few minutes - then lift it.
Or, I use cooking oil spray and spray my surface, roll the fondant, use the cutter then pick it up - it won't stick to the surface.
I dust with cornstarch
If you need to use it right away you can make them on wax paper on a cookie sheet and slice the waxp paper into smaller peices with the letters apart. Pop them into the freezer for a few minutes. Pull out one letter at a time and peal it off and place it carefully before it derfrosts.
I usually let them dry hard an hour or two and they are much easier to handle.
Thank you all so much for the advice. I tried to lift it right away so evidently that was the problem.
It is also possible you are rolling your fondant too thin. You might try letting it be a bit thicker before trying the other suggestions. But letting it dry just a minute or so does help lots & The fzing idea should work too
I don't know what I would do without this website!!
