I use a barely damp paper towel and wipe down the cake once its covered. Then I let it dry completely before I touch it again.

I also use a barely damp towel dampened with vodka. That evaporates

I use a steamer and it works great.

Yes. I bought a steamer that you use to get the wrinkles out of clothes. I use that to steam my fondant covered cakes. It works wonderfully to eliminate all the powdered sugar or cornstarch and also gives your cake a nice shine. Allow to dry completely before touching or you will leave fingerprints.

It is a little hand held steamer that I bought at Wal-Mart for about $16.00.
Worth every penny.

Thanks for all the help with this. I was able to get it all off. Now is there any hints on rerolling this after you have rolled it out once? Mine wants to have ripples in it the second time I try to roll it out.

If I have to re-roll my fondant I just form it back into a ball and knead it just til it comes together and do it again icon_smile.gif

You can also try rubbing a tiny bit of crisco into the marks, that usually works for me and it works its way in and there's not a shiny spot after.

I have used crisco. I apply it lightly with a brush. Now I really want to try the steamer. I have seen them use a steamer on Cake Boss to make a cake purse shiny. Will it dry? Or will it keep that shiny wet look?
