How to keep fondant from sticking - 

 

Have you ever watched cake boss and they are making a cake with fondant? Or, maybe a Youtube tutorial on fondant? Chances are, when the fondant gets too sticky they will recommend using corn starch or sometimes even powdered sugar. Here in New Mexico it is so dry that using these will cause your fondant to crack or fall apart. Instead of a powder, use a shorten such as Crisco; coat your hands, surface, and rolling pin to avoid a sticky situation. If you are using silicone molds, play with a combination of shortening and corn starch to remove the fondant. Hope this helps, and don't forget to have fun!
