After you have applied a layer of fondant on a cake, how do you get the sugar/cornstarch marks off and make the true color come through?

You can first try to brush off the excess sugar/cornstarch with a dry pastry brush; that should remove most of the extra. After that, rubbing the fondant with your hands/fingers will help the fondant absorb the sugar/cornstarch left on the cake.
