When using fondant for cake decorating it’s a good idea to keep cornstarch (or powdered sugar) close by. Fondant is sticky. It can stick to your work surface, cutters or molds, and this can cause a mess and unnecessary cake decorating stress!
This DIY Corstarch puff is super simple and cheap to make and really comes in handy when working with fondant.
What you’ll need.
Cornstarch (or powdered sugar)
Making Your Cornstarch Puff
Using a ruler or your nonstick fondant mat, cut a square out of your cheesecloth. My square was 7×7.
Put one big scoop of cornstarch in the middle of your cut cheesecloth.
Gather the sides of your cheesecloth and secure with a rubber band.
You can dress it up a little by adding a ribbon.
I store cornstarch puff in a silicone muffin liner in my cake decorating drawer.
This DIY cornstarch puff makes dusting your work surfaces, molds, and cutters super easy and it only takes about 5 minutes to make. Give it a try and tell me what you think!
