I am wondering how everyone who does fondant/modeling chocolate/etc. figurines and other items keeps the marks from rubber gloves off of the finished product!? I haven't worked with fondant/modeling chocolate combination yet, but this week's cake will be my first, and it has some hand sculpture. The wrinkles from my gloves show when I try to roll balls or shape pieces. Any tricks?
AI don't use gloves, but from my experience working in a lab...my guess is your gloves are too big.
I used to use small or extra small and never felt like they would bunch.
I also don't use gloves. I wash my hands like crazy and keep my nails super short. But it does sound like you may need smaller gloves.
I don't use gloves for assembly either. I use them to color the fondant so that I don't stain my hands, then wash thoroughly (i have hot hands) and make sure they are good and dry. I will even rub a little corn starch or powdered sugar between my hands too so the fondant doesn't get sticky. Wet hands=sticky messy fondant!
