Sorry to bother you with this question, I didn't find the answer on the forum.
I am trying to cut fondant with my exacto knife but I still don't have a clean edge, and also my forms got "expanded" when I cut it.
How do you cut the fondant ? do you mix fondant and gum paste, do you dry the fondant a while ? What are your tips ?
Thanks a lot for your help !!

If I'm cutting a decoration out of fondant and I want it to be just fondant (no tylose, etc.) I always roll it out and put it in the fridge for a few minutes. It firms it up enough that I can get a clean cut without stretching it out of shape.
I make sure that the blade is very clean and I run a bit of shortening on the blade so it will slide.
