For all you experienced CCer's. I've seen that some of you roll your fondant on vinyl or in between vinyl. This has to be better than using PS or CS (which is driving me crazy!). It leaves my fondant with small little cracks! icon_cry.gif Please Help! TIA! icon_biggrin.gif

I've been using this method for many, many years. I bought some really thick vinyl and I roll my fondant on that (I don't grease or powder). When it is rolled out I flip the vinyl, fondant and all, over on my cake and gently peel the vinyl away from the fondant.

Thanks for the help. Do you roll it between two sheets or just on top of one sheet? What type of fondant do you use?

Just on top.

Sure that is one way. With chocolate fondant, you don't need a mat. You can just roll it right out on the counter. I never get any elephant skin or cracks..... ever.

There are lots of methods and lots of fondants out there, the key is to find one that tastes GOOD and performs well for you.

I use vinyl, but I still put a small amount of cornstarch on the vinyl. I guess I'll try it without and see if I like it though.
