I've been wanting to buy one for a while, but don't know where to start. I want it for making fondant borders, letters etc. Any suggestions?

Makins Ultimate Clay Extruder-=--long light green metal tube with a "T" twist handle. I swear by it and won't use any other.

I'll third that. It's awesome! They used to sell it at Michael's and JoAnn but I can't find it anymore, and have seen several threads indicating the same. I think some people were still finding it at Hobby Lobby but that was forever ago (and irrelevant since you're in L.A.). I bought mine at polyclayplay.com; at the time (about 8 months ago) she had the best price including shipping, but I don't know if her prices have changed since then.

I also use the same one as everyone else here...I LOVE it more, now that I've started loading from the bottom and not the top, where I had to jiggle out the pusher over and over.

Here's what it looks like...http://www.theclaystore.com/pages-productinfo-category-97-product-745/makins-professional-ultimate-clay-extruder.html

I love all the different discs...I used it to make the cakeboard and face mask in my little avatar photo...would not have worked without it.

I just bought one last week at Hobby Lobby here in TN. They had several more in stock along with many other items by the same company. Also, I was able to purchase it 40% off with a coupon. Look for one of the coupons and you can get a deal!
