    Hi there,

    I was just wondering which is the best to use when rolling out sugar paste?

    I thought you had to use icing sugar?

    Sorry, I am new to cake decorating, LOL. I just wonder which is the best to use ie: icing sugar, or corn starch?

    We use new white or ecru Knee Hi nylons. Just add the cornstarch or half cornstarch, half powdered sugar mixture and tie a knot in it and you are ready to go.
