What do you use yours for? I don't have one but am thinking about getting one.

I have a cheap one that kills my hand, but I use it a lot with the different circle holes to pipe borders to cookies, cakes and make hair for gumpaste figures.

As soon as I can afford it, I will be getting a better one that doesn't kill my hands!

Good Luck!

sew4children...what kind do you have? I saw one at Michael's today that was about $25 that I was considering. They had 2 and it was the bigger of the two.

Makins Ultimate Clay Extruder is the best. It's green with a twist handle. I love mine. I use it for borders, flower petals, bow loops, hair, ropes, and much more. I used my 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby and it cost me $12.49. You can buy them at Michaels as well.

It's one of my favorite cake tools. thumbs_up.gif

I was just as Michale's and they have a new one on the clay side... it's 24$ and it's got a better handle to push the paste out.... I will post the pic in a few.... I am getting it... it's better than the makins for sure and has all the disks and... well.. lemme upload the pics I took so you guys can see it.... I almost bought the makins at a cake expo... glad I didn't cause this was worth waiting for.... can't wait to use it lol

edited to add pictures... the handle is like a crank I guess.... like the ones for the manual pasta machines... so much better!!!!

I have the one from Global Sugar Art.....I like it, but rather expensive.... I was thinking of getting one of the large ones from Makins ...but for 1/2 off at Michaels, I think I will give it a try first.
