I use Crisco and powdered sugar on my counter to keep the fondant from sticking. However, when I cut stripes or anything for that matter, the powdered sugar always gets on the sides of the stripes which looks messy. Then I try to dust it off, but there is always some left. I use a pizza cutter to do the cutting. Is there a better way?

Use cornstarch instead of powdered sugar, and it won't take as much. It's easier to brush off too. You can clean up fondant decorations by painting them with vodka. The alcohol evaporates and doesn't leave a taste behind.

I clean up my stuff with vodka. Works well.

Better still - use the veg shortening to grease the counter, your hands and lightly grease the rolling pin. Do not use powdered sugar OR cornstarch. After all, if the powder never gets on your fondant you won't have to take it off!

Thanks. I used Crisco without the ps and it worked good.
