I'm trying to find some paper towel over here in Spain, without holes! I can't! Would anyone be willing to send me a few sheets in the mail?!

Honestly, Laura, I would be willing, but I don't think a few sheets would be enough. You have to use at least one sheet per cake, because sometimes the buttercream isn't quite crusted and sticks to the towel, then you have to throw it away and use another.

Have you tried using either wax paper or parchment paper? People say that those work just as well as Viva.

Even computer paper works well.

I stopped using the viva method. I just chill my cake that has been frosted and use a metal spatula dipped in boiling water (then dried) to smooth my cakes....works great.

you can also use sew in interfacing from the fabric dept. its smooth with no pattern. But has anyone else lately noticed anything about viva. I used it the other day and afterwards noticed little bits inthe icing. i looked at the viva, pulled off 6-7 sheets and it was almost like it was made from recycled paper, there were little bits init, even into the roll. i check it now everytime i use it.

Have you tried the Melvira method? It works as well and the high density foam roller might be something that was easier to find there.

You could probably mail order a 12+ ct case of them from one of the office supply stores...this way you'll have enough to last you a long time.
