I just tried to roll out the MFF that I incorrectly made. I forgot to add the glycerine at the beginning, so I kneaded it in after I realized I forgot it.
I have a large Fat Daddio's mat for fondant rolling, and I greased it w/ crisco, and then powdered it w/ cornstarch. I couldn't get that fondant off to save my life. It stuck almost everywhere.
Is it because I screwed up the fondant, or did I not grease the mat enough? Any thoughts?
When using Michele Foster's fondant I have to use cornstarch. This fondant loves cornstarch. I cannot get it to work to save my life unless I use cornstarch...and plenty of it. I have gone to Wal-Mart at 2 am for cornstarch...could NOT get it to work using powdered sugar and forget greasing the mat...this fondnat will just stick...CORNSTARCH ...that's the key.
I don't use any other fondant besides Michele Foster's and I've never been able to use it without cornstarch.
Between the crisco and the powdered sugar seems like you made a paste. Wash the mat and start all over. Either use a strainer and sprinkle the cs around the surface (not a thick covering but enough to cover the mat) as you're rolling you need to pick up the fondant and move it around applying more cs as needed. Or, use crisco and pick up and move the fondant adding more crisco as needed. Mines stick when I just roll, roll, roll and don't pick up off the surface.
I washed the mat, and then LIBERALLY applied corn starch. It worked! Thanks!
I've never tried the cornstarch before, so I'll have to give that a shot. Just for future reference, either use powdered sugar OR grease the mat. The two together negate each other
