a clay gun works more like a cookie press, NO HEAT!
But if you just need stipes pipe some with royal icing

Another idea if you can't find the clay gun.
cut fondant strips and make lines with the back of a paring knife, it should give you a very similar effect.

I dont think she calls it a BLOCKED gun! I think the server has blocked the word.
It may be one called a ...s u g a r c r a f t... gun seen here http://www.earlenescakes.com/store/images/tools/T-BSCG_LG.jpg
on Earlenes site.

You can find it other places also.

I purchased the same sugarpaste gun from CK Products for $35. It is slow going if you are using a plate w/small opening, but makes perfect stipes, shapes, etc.

you can go to Michaels or ACMoore but you have to go to the Clay section area...

ACMoore: http://www.acmoore.com/p-31404-clay-gun-with-19-design-discs-.aspx
(I got this one but i got it at Michaels with the 50%off coupon on black Friday)

They also have this one: http://www.acmoore.com/p-30043-makins-clay-gun-extruder-.aspx

you can check out these other post on about Clay gun they have some good ideas on using it:

I purchased the fondant gun from Earlene's but didn't need it for about 3 months after the purchase. I didn't even bother opening it until I needed it and guess what, it didn't work! I was so upset, it cost me over $70 with tax & shipping. Not Earlene's fault at all, it was mine for being so stupid as to not make sure it worked the minute I got it! But live & learn.

BTW - Earlene Rocks!
