So sorry if this is posted elsewhere, I have limited access to the internet and can't search for this.

I am wondering how to get the excess icing sugar off my fondant cakes? I roll my fondant out on icing sugar because I haven't mastered using shortening yet. I am making a cake for my sister's baby shower, it's white with pastel accents, and even though I don't mind the white looking dusty (because it's not very noticable) I don't like the pastel accents looking dusty.

Advice? Thanks!

Hi, welcome to CC! You can use a large brush to brush it off. Or you can rub a tiny bit of shortening on the pastel coloured fondant. If you are not sure about this, just use the brush! icon_smile.gif

I use a very soft brush. Seems to work and not hurt the decorations.
