I sometimes end up with rough edges on fondant shapes no matter how careful I am. Well, I recently bought that new SMOOTH AWAY hair remover system. It has a finger size smoother in it and it works excellent after the fondant has dried a little to smooth the edges. Just thought I would share with ya all. icon_rolleyes.gif

I used it once and bought all the girls in my family (sisters, daughters, daughter-in-law and step daughter) one of their own. It is great!!!!

Is it safe to use with food?

I can't imagine why it would not be food safe.

Make sure to label them so you don't mix them up icon_smile.gif

I would hate to have to explain why there is little black spots on the fondant icon_wink.gif

LOL i have one and I never thought about using it to smooth the rough edges! altough I must say, for the hair part i was not too impressed with mine, i have fairly coarse hair and it doesnt seem to do the job as well as a razor does icon_smile.gif

OMG, I am gagging SO hard right now!! icon_lol.gif

One note of warning... you will run across a handful of people who will hang you and throw stones at your body because this item is not 'approved for food use'. (Yes... the roller queen here has heard every argument...) So, just be prepared for it. This sounds like a fantastic, creative idea!! I personally give you kudos for coming up with it.

Good idea. I'm just not a fan of using anything that isn't made for food. I have that slight paranoia =]

I will give a little warning. Those things have been on the market for years and before I had kids and had time to worry about my legs I bought them. Once you have used them for awhile your legs can tend to calus over and get very tough because your skin is trying to defend itsself against the use of sand paper. Go easy.

A metal nail file works really well too-and it's washable!

At first I thought you meant for your legs because of the previous post icon_biggrin.gif . I said to myself " Wow! You're one tough lady to use a metal nail file on your legs!" icon_lol.gif
