Can/Should I roll it on cocoa powder to keep it from sticking?

I've never tried but, try it on a small amount and let us know how it works.

I'd be afraid it'd dry it out.

Why not roll it out on crisco?

Chocolate fondant if FINICKY! I personally wouldn't use cocoa powder, since it will probably dry it out, and you'll get cracks galore. Chocolate fondant is already prone to cracking, so it will probably become cracked to a point of no return if you use cocoa powder.

I'd use crisco, and if it's too moist, use just a little sprinkling of corn starch. GL!

I roll on cornstarch. After applying, wipe the excess of with a dry kitchen towel. Let it set up a bit then rub it with crisco and a paper towel. Has worked for me. I use choc MMF.

Thanks all. I went with the crisco and it worked great. I used Satin Ice and it turned out to be very easy to handle. Last time I used Satin Ice Vanilla it was a nightmare rolling on Crisco so I was a little concerned about this time but it was great.

Wiltonlady, I didn't even try the cocoa based on replys here.
