I have seen them use it on TLC Cake Challenge to roll their fondont . Is there a personal size one I can get? It would make rolling so mich easier.

Looks convenient, but the strips are only 6 inches wide icon_sad.gif

Fondant.

You can use the pasta roller attachment for most mixers, a hand crank pasta roller, available at any kitchen wares store and many department stores, or a sheeter. A sheeter is a professional piece of equipment and will cost several thousand $.

The "sheeter" for a larger piece of fondant is REALLY expensive. Even a used one. And they don't store very well. Too big! For instance, a sheeter that does a 20" width, new, is about $2,000. And the largest cake that would cover is a 12" cake.

"Hobby" bakers get to roll out their fondant by hand. If you are having troubles with getting your fondant the same thickness, I recommend making or buying "rings" for the ends of your rolling pin (or pipe, or whatever), to get an even thickness.

However, if you are looking for a way to easily roll out smaller pieces (like 4 - 6" wide), then the KA pasta roller, or other pasta machines are fantastic!

I know it is only 6" but that is the only one I knew of that is a personal size. I wish I had a wider one also.

I just bought a pasta machine in the clay dept at Michaels it was only $25.00 and I love it !!! I used a 50% off coupon so it was real cheap! I used one in A Nicholas lodge class and came home and bought one...It makes bows and letters etc all uniform thickness..I highly recomend it! thumbs_up.gif
