Try dusting your hands with cornstarch. This is good for hot hands and helps keep you from sticking to your fondant.

You can also dust the counter with it to keep the fondant from sticking to the counter.

work some more icing sugar into your fondant. i have the same issue. always allow for extra time for figures to dry if you live somewhere prone to humidity. its very frustrating... the castle cake in my pictures was an absoloute night mare... the little girl on it went all melty and she was supposed to be sitting on a flower but the petals dropped, i had piped the R>I in a landscpae fashion but even that just melted into a big droopy pile! unfortuntaley sometiems the weather will just win. =(

to work in an air conditioned room is the only solution when i work w/ fondant & weather isn't cooperating...from where i come from, adding more PS or cornstarch or shortening just don't cut it icon_sad.gif
