Working with black fondant, splashes of confectionary sugar on black fondant. How do I make it shiny? and any advice on how to smooth out wrinkles?

to remove powdered sugar you can rub with another bit of fondant, or jsut dust it down - either a brush or just kitchen paper. to make the problem less obvious, you can roll out on cocoa powder instead.

to make it shiney you can use steam, or confectioners glaze - gives the best results. you can also rub on crisco, although eventually this will disapear.

what kind of wrinkles? elephant skin ones can be helped by rubbing in some crisco. the ones from smoothing out fondant, when it bumfles at the bottom, you just need to keep adjusting the fondant, smoothing it down, and repeating!

I roll out all my fondant on shortening to avoid the white powder. However, I know that some people use a tiny bit of shortening rubbed on the powdery spot to get rid of it.
