I am having fun as an amatuer making fondant covered cakes for family and friends. I make my own fondant, and when it's shiny, I have no problems. When I have requests for matte, I can't figure out how to get it rolled and decorations made without visible powdered sugar or corn starch. I see so many lovely colored curlies and such on this site that look perfect! How do I do that without powder showing? Thanks for your help!

I only roll fondant on a smear of shortening. No powder(s)--ever.

Depending on what type of fondant you are using, as long as you keep turning the fondant frequently while rolling it out, you may not need anything or very little. Also, some people use vinyl mats.
