i made a cake last week and my color fondant was black and red. by the time it was all done, the colors were faded and had cornstarch dust on them. was not happy with end product.

How can i roll out my fondant without using cornstarch and it not stick??

any suggestions would be great as i have a purple cake tomorrow to do and dont want the corncstarch to dim the color.

Lightly grease your work surface & rolling pin with Crisco, that will keep things from sticking.

Good Luck!

Not sure what colours you are using but I know a lot of the new 'electric colours' are light sensitive - which means they fade when exposed to light - shouldn't be overnight though - you might want to add a base colour to help with this and try and keep cake away from sunlight and even artificial light. This was very evident in a recent show where a couple of the cakes had faded from quite hot pink to nearly white over the period of the show (approx week) just from the fluorescent lighting!

I use the spray version - to stop the sticking - Bakels Sprink (not sure whether it is available where you are)
