I hand cut some fondant pieces out today for a cake and I can't figure out how to get a smooth edge on it. They were really ragged looking.

I tried a sharp paring knife and my exacto knife and one was no better than the other.

How do you get a smooth edge without a "cutter"?

TIA for any tips for this! icon_smile.gif

Have you used the cutting wheel? Here is a link from Global Sugar Art,

Let the pieces dry well then use a nail file to smooth them.

add a tad of tylose to the fondnat and let it sit a few minutes before you cut with super sharp excato. cuts nice and clean
