Hi! I'm new to decorating with fondant (mostly because I don't like the taste) and I was wondering what the difference was between a fondant rolling pin and a regular rolling pin. Can you only use a fondant rolling pin on fondant? Can I use regular pin instead?
Thanks so much!

I use both a wooden rolling pin without handles and a silicone rolling pin with handles. Both work just fine. I don't think there's any rules.

You can use either. It's just that the fondant rolling pins are usually longer than a regular rolling pin.

You can also use a stainless steel one. Mine is great. It weighs about 5lbs and it rolls the fondant not me.

I recommend getting one with handles, any rolling pin with handles. Preferably the longest one you can find. The Bakers Kitchen dot com sells long wooden ones with handles for fairly cheap.
