Whenever I make cakes and roll out the fondant, I usually end up with excess icing sugar (not sure of the american term) on the fondant from rolling it out.
How do you remove it? If you steam it, what do you use to steam it? Thanks in advance
AWell there are steamers people use for this purpose. I'm not sure if they use the same thing as a fabric steamer, since I've never had one.
Whenever I get that problem on small pieces of fondant, for example, those that you shape with a silicone mould, I use my electric kettle when it starts boiling.
You can always rub shortening over your cake and on areas where the sugar stains. They'll come right out! The shortening will give the fondant a little bit of shine but not like a steamer. You can steam with a mini clothes steamer. Something like this:
I use a mini clothes steamer. If I am airbrushing with luster dust, I skip this and just airbrush.
Don't concentrate too much in one spot, don't want to melt it.
And watch for spitting from the nozzle. Water drips are much harder to fix than powdered sugar marks!
I just use a steamer. Here's the one I have http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002AKN6M2/?tag=cakecentral-20+steamer It works great!
