In aine2's face tutorial it shows a picture of a sugar gun. I'm wondering if that's what it's actually called, and where to buy one.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi

I picked mine on-line from Orchard products, it was reasonably cheaper and shipping was not much.

I have this one. I love it,but I think if you are planning big projects you might try something bigger. It is very small and only holds a small about of fondant

I got a clay gun from Michaels for 5.50 (without my coupon!) It was in a section of Makin's that I had never seen before. It had push molds and texture sheets and all sorts of fun things. I don't know if it is "food safe" but I am not worried about it, it is just the standard hard plastic, I can't imagine it is going to do any real harm. Of course you can't use a clay gun for fondant if you've used it for clay already, but I don't see the harm in buying one for that specific purpose, especially if it was a metal one. I also read a post that said you shouldn't ever use PVC pipe, it isn't food safe, but they use PVC pipe to run water lines in construction- so it must be food safe, right? But I'm still doing family cakes, so I haven't had to worry about alot of the picky picky health code stuff yet.

don`t buy the plastic neon clay guns because it doesnt work, the handles bend after 3 or so uses, invest in a `good metal clay gun

I agree. Mine is from Michaels as well. I have never used it for clay only fondant and gumpaste. PVC pipe is food safe (while it does not have a NSF label on it) for the exact reasons Randipanda says. Many cake decorators go to home construction stores and get PVC pipes custom cut for rolling large pieces of fondant if they can't afford a sheeter.
