To every Powder Sugar/Cornstarch Coated surface before rolling fondant CC'er out there (including me!)

Please watch this.....




Did you know that you could cut your rolled fondant, take that piece, added to the side you need more fondant on, roll and push the fondant.... and it will blend with no lines???
I didn't! until I saw this.....

It will change the way we have all been "trained"!

I took a 5 day class with Julie this past October. She is very talented and a great teacher. We learned that rolling technique in the class.

I don't usually use PS when rolling out due to the residue left on the surface of colored fondant. I use a thin layer of crisco instead and that works beautifully. I do still use PS when working with white fondant tho since the residue doesn't show.

Thanks for sharing that link. It was interesting. Not long ago I bought a big sheet of clear vinyl and used that. It worked wonderfully. I don't remember who suggested this to me but it was on a thread here at CC.
