So I've heard that some people use Kitchen Aid attachments to make their fondant thin and into ropes. Could anyone tell me if you use the pasta attachment? Or if it's the grinder attachment?
I don't have either but have read where they use the pasta one to make it thin. Surely someone will respond that does this to tell you how it is done. Sorry I wasn't much help.
Thanks for your help! I was thinking it was the pasta one too.
I use the pasta roller attachment for fondant accents. It make nice thin pieces for ribbons or cutting out shapes. I bought the set of 3 pasta attachments, but I have not tried fondant in the spaghetti attachment or the fettucine attachment. Those look too hard to clean!
I've made the thicker ropes using the grinder attachment. Just don't put in the little cutting blade. It's a little tricky because you have several ropes coming out at the same time thus you also have to put quite a bit of fondant into it to make you ropes.
Thanks!! I really appreciate all of the comments!!
oooooh i hven't used my KA attachments in a long time cept to slice up veggies for soup.. i'll have to give it a try!! thanks! wow~!
I was just going to ask about this. Bought a KA pasta roller attachment but when it didn't work. I'm not sure if I broke it, it was already broken when I received it, or I just wasn't doing it right. So forgive all the questions...
Are both rollers supposed to move?
Do you feed from the top?
Do you use shortening on the rollers?
What do you use to clean with?
Anyone who can give me as much detail as you can would be soooo appreciated. I'm scared to try it again
Yes Both rollers are supposed to move
Yes You feed from the top
No I don't use shortening. I just dust both sides of the fondant before I feed it in each time.
To clean it I just wipe the rollers with a damp cloth.
*Here's another tip. Always start on number 1. If you want your fondant thinner, put it in again on number 2, and so on. You don't want to jam a fat piece of fondant on number 4. Just flatten the fondant a little before you start.
Hope this helps.
Thanks a lot Becklynn.
I'm going to try it tonight, keep your fingers crossed for me!
Anyone else have any tips?
