I've only used Wilton once in a class. It was really thick and fairly easy to pick up. I'm in the middle of making a cake due in 2 hrs. I bought satin ice (heard it was much better to use & taste than Wilton). Long story short it's very soft and mushy straight from the newly opened container. I'm just trying to make circle cut outs and cannot even get the circles off the counter.
HELP is this just the way satin ice is or what am I doing wrong?

I just took a class and the lady said you can't knead it too much. I don't recommend using powdered sugar, but instead use shortening. Grease your roll mat or counter with the shortening. The instructor even suggested putting some shortening into the fondant as well.

Hope that helps.

You could also dust your surface with a little corn starch

Do you have any Wilton fondant on hand? You mix some Wilton in with the SI and it will give you more control over the fondant and allow you to do what you need to do. HTH!

I never had a problem with Satin Ice. I agree with shelbur10, use cornstarch to prevent sticking. Maybe, it's also the weather.. high humidity can make the fondant softer and stickier.
