I just received my sugarcraft gun today. It is much smaller than I thought it would be. It is only about 5 inches long. Just hoping I got the right gun. Anyone else have this and is this the right size.

The gun is red. It is known as the s u g a r c r a f t gun.

Some people really like the -s- u- g- a- r- c- r- a- f- t- gun.

Others find it hard to use--I'm one of those.

I prefer the Makins' Ultimate Clay Extruder light green metal one with the "T" twist handle over the red & black one. The barrel is longer so you get longer pieces, it's easier on your hands to extrude, and you don't need to add as much crisco to the fondant .

I have the s u g a r c r a f t gun and I loooove it.You just need one hand to pump out ur softened paste and do the arrangement of your decoration with your other hand, its great.IMHO.

I have both, thanks to Texas Rose.

I'll keep my green fella.

The green one is less expensive. They are still carrying it at Hobby Lobby in the San Antonio, TX area.

I forgot it's easier to use.

Hmmm....well I will try it out. Back to my original question I thought this gun was bigger.....I guess this is the correct size, about 5 inches?

Yes, that's the one and only size of the red & black s.u.g.a.r.c.r.a.f.t. gun.

That's the one, I have it & a clay gun but I received for Christmas, the Mother & Father of all extruders, it is huge, like the one Jennifer Dontz shows on her DVD The easy & Tasty way To Perfect Fondant.

You mean the one that looks like a caulking gun? If you don't mind my asking, what company makes it and do they have a website? icon_smile.gif

It is manufactured by Kemper & you can purchase it from The Cake Cottage for $59.95.
