I am new here, so this may sound silly. I just made a bunch of loops that I am going to assemble into a bow for my cake this week. I used chocolate (brown) fondant but the cornstarch that I rolled the fondant out on really shows. Will this dust off after they dry? Does anyone have any tips to avoid this??

Roll your fondant or gumpaste on the lightest film of veg shortening rubbed onto your counter.

What Leah said !

I roll everything on a light film of crisco, but it's particularly helpful with dark colors. icon_wink.gif

You may be able to dust it off with a soft, dry paintbrush after the loops are completely dry.

The other option is to put Everclear, vodka, or gin in a fine mist spray bottle and spray each loop before assembly. Let the alcohol evaporate before touching them.
