Have you tried rolling it out with crisco instead of PS?

Ditto. There's no good reason to roll fondant on cornstarch or powdered sugar and several good reasons not to.

I agree with the others but if you do use PS or cornstarch then you can get a fine misting bottle (like they sell for travel at drug stores) and fill it with Vodka and mist your cake. It should dissolve the powder without wetting your cake. I use an airbrush but if you don't have one this should work.
