Sometimes I need the cornstarch to keep my fondant from sticking to the board when I roll it out. How do I get off the excess once it is on the cake?
Roll fondant on a THIN film of veg shortening. I quit using cs years ago.
you can brush it off gently with a clean pastry or craft brush.
you can steam it with a clothes steamer or iron.
I find cs easier to remove that ps, but what I also do, is use a piece of left over fondant, roll into a ball, and gently massage over the cake. Gets rid of the cs and leaves a beautiful surface.
Thanks - those all sound like good options. I'll test them and see what works best!
I use a steam iron and it works wonderfully and saves me a lot of time. I use to use a pastry brush which was very time consuming, at least for me.
I use a steamer.
light rub down with shortening!
ahh, see that's a good idea too. Why didn't I think of any of this?
