So which is better to keep it from sticking to a mat, crisco (thin layer) on the surface or PS or Cornstarch?

I find that crisco works best with satin ice

I've used all three at one time or another but most of the time I use Crisco now. I usually use Choco-pan fondant to cover cakes, and it rolls out great with a thin coat of Criso on my mat.

I have used all 3, crisco, PS and cornstarch. DEFINITE NO on the cornstarch, dried it waay too much, the crisco works best because it tends to dry quickly anyways, but if it is a bit humid in area you are working, LIGHTLY sprinkle the powdered sugar over the crisco-ed surface. Thats how I always do great for me, and work quick, it will dry out and crack faster with the sugar or cornstarch. I live in south MS, so humidity is a huge problem may not need the sugar at all! just try and test to see what works best for you!

since satin ice dries so fast,(elephant skin), i would use the crisco on a mat, roll fast even then, and work fast to get it on your cake, etc. hth

I recently read on here that someone used the shiny side of freezer paper. Tried it and it worked like a charm-no crisco, cornstarch or powdered sugar.

I don't use anything at all on my mats.... and I use primarily Satin Ice. Never have any problem at all, and I use top and bottom mat, so no air really hits it to dry out.

I use Crisco - buuuuuttttt... the last time I used spray butter (an off-brand of PAM. The cake didn't have to be white white) and I loved it! It did tint the fondant ever so slightly - but not enough to mean anything. But it definitely was not a bright white cake.
