Hi y'all!!!
I've searched the site looking for tips to making STRAIGHT strips of MMF for a striped cake... with no luck.

Hoping to find some suggestions, ideas, tricks or advice.. I have two cakes this weekend, in which both have stripes, and I've never done stripes.

TIA! icon_smile.gif

I made one with stripes last week and used a ruler and a pizza cutter. Just placed the ruler on the fondant and cut along the side of it. That way you can measure the correct length at the same time. They also sell a fondant roller that cuts and embosses strips of fondant. Maybe you could try that? I believe it's called a ribbon cutter.
Good luck!

Ditto on the ruler and the pizza cutter. That was my reply before I even read Lisaa1996's reply.

Definitely a ruler (I use a yard stick for longer stripes) and a pizza cutter or knife. I tend to use a knife more than a pizza cutter because I feel like I have more control, but that's just me! Good luck.

I use the ruler too, but there is a product you can buy ( I've been meaning to) that has 2 rollers with a stick through the middle. You adjust the rollers to the width you need, then cut. I've seen them a few places, but the last place was Sharon Zambito's website...sugaredproductions.

I have the W i l t o n ribbon cutter. It is O.K. but not the best. It doesn't cut through the fondant cleanly and it leaves fuzzy edges. Just my opinion. icon_smile.gif

Sheila thanks, I hated to spend $16 (or less w/ coupon) for that and it do exactly what you just described!
