I just wrap fondant/gumpaste strips around a wooden dowel. let them dry and slide off... they are super easy

How thick do you roll your fondant/gumpaste? The last time I tried making them, they broke when I picked them up.

I think wilton.com said to make them 1/16 th but i have done all sorts of thickness ... i just experiment I often take them off when they are sort of still a little pliable if they need to drape over the cake edges... i leave them dry hard if they are standing up or need to not wilt at all....

Mines broke when I made them too thin, as well. Also, the MMF held up much better vs my Satin Ice curls
