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. Â The wrinkles from my gloves show when I try to roll balls or shape pieces. Â 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. Â I wash my hands like crazy and keep my nails super short. Â But it does sound like you may need smaller gloves. Â
I don't use gloves for assembly either. Â 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. Â I will even rub a little corn starch or powdered sugar between my hands too so the fondant doesn't get sticky. Â Wet hands=sticky messy fondant!
