I am making fondant roses for a wedding cake this weekend and the fondant is too sticky and won't ruffle (when using thin shaping foam). I am using Satin Ice fondant for the first time. I have always used Wilton in the past. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

try using a little corn starch... should help. I always use Satin Ice and have NEVER had a problem with it.

Also, it is best to use gumpaste, 50/50 or add some tylose in your fondant when making ruffles.
