I'm hoping someone is online who can offer some advice. I have a cake to finish tonight for tomorrow morning. I thought I had read that cornstarch was preferable to icing sugar when rolling/smoothing fondant because you could just brush it off. The fondant was sticky so I put a bit on top so I could actually use my fondant smoother but now it won't all brush off. It looks like I have a snowfall effect on my nice smooth chocolate fondant. Actually it doesn't even look as nice as a snowfall effect, I just have white here and there and it doesn't go with my design at all!

Is there something I can do? I need to start the royal icing piping soon or I will be up all night. If anyone can offer a suggestion I would greatly appreciate it.

thanks in advance!

Just get a steamer and steam it off. Hold the steamer just close enough for the steam to hit the fondant.
