It sounds like the fondant/gumpaste mixture might be to dry. Is is creasing while you making the decorations or after they are made and drying?

It is creasing while i am working with it and the creases are there when I'm done. I use TONS of crisco and I thought that may be the problem but I tried using less and it didn't seem to effect anything just made the mixture stickier. The creases are from working the mixture and then folding it in on itself, I guess that's how I would explain it. If I roll something into a ball I can find the edge and pretty much unroll it once I'm done. I've made my decorations but I'm not very happy with them and it's only because of the creasing.

What are you making? Can you roll it out flat, but thick then form your decorations?

I am making a snow man, so no I don't think it's something I can roll.

I'm not sure how to make a post with a pic so you can see what I'm talking about.

Rolling it in a ball is still showing the creases. I have had that happen, but I was able to get them out by keep rolling it round and round. I am sorry - I wish I could help more!
