The love of baking, lint on fondant/gum paste any tips?!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm sure we all have this problem from time to time. Darn lint ended up on our amazing cake now what to do? What do you guys do when lint in on you're piece of art? So far I've just got a paint brush with a dab of water and try to get it off, but it ends up leaving a clearish mark o.O.


Tips that help (so far)
Wear white cotton shirt
Clean like crazy
Use lint roller or piece of fondant on counter
Wear gloves
Use lint free paper towels

And of course there's still lint, I suppose it would only help if we worked in a bubble.

Trying to remove the little bugger with a damp paper towel just moves it around.  I'm wondering if touching it with a piece of sticky tape would do?  And if you ever get a water spot on your fondant quickly blot up the water with a paper towel then dip your finger into powdered sugar and rub on the spot, it will blend right in.
