I ordered the cricut cake and now want to get a pasta roller to ensure my gumpaste is thin enough to work properly. Does anyone have a pasta roller they recommend? Has anyone tried the Kitchenaid pasta sheet roller attachment?

Thanks so much!

I have the Kitchen Aid pasta roller attachment and love it. It's a little difficult to clean at times, just be sure to be careful with it. But I use it ALL the time now when I'm doing flowers, decorations, etc. I think it's much easier to use than an Atlas.

I love my kitchen aid pasta roller. Got a great deal at https://www.boscovs.com. If I remember, it was like $40.

ddaigle - $40 is a bargain! I bought mine for $120 but I love it. I do private classes and it makes it easier and faster to roll. I especially enjoy it when I make flowers - I can roll so thin without exerting too much pressure on my wrist.

I have never seen the attachment for under $200 in Canada! icon_sad.gif I have been wanting it forever...

I wouldn't mind having a KA pasta roller attachment. For now, though, my Makins clay manual roller will have to do. icon_wink.gif

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!! Thanks to Nicholas Lodge for recommending it to us. I imagine the $40 one person paid is for the roller only...When paying over $120, you get three pieces: roller, spaghetti, and fettucini...When I asked Nicholas which to get, he recommended all three....He said he uses the fettucini roller for small bows and swags and the spaghetti for tassels.

As far as cleaning, use a non-toxic spray on top and take a paper towel on the bottom....Wad it up and push upwards towards the roller...While the machine is on, rub the paper towel back and forth several times....Don't put the paper towel through the top....If you need more, spray the top again...

It cleans up in about 2-3 minutes and that's after using black sometimes...

Yes...my $40 attachment was for the wide noodle roller. It is all I need to do the fondant accents I do. Love the idea for the spaghetti attachment! I hate using an extruder.
