I still have not come close to getting the really intricate designs. But these were fondant that was left out in a ball for most of the day.I rolled it to about 1/8" added some shortening to the mat added may piece then rolled it on the mat some more to adhere it well. I also trimmed the sides I cut the fondant a little short about 1/8" away from the side and top, I noticed when I left it all the way to edge it would get caught up in the machine way more often. I also did it in high speed and medium pressure. HTH

What works best for me is to roll the fondant/tylose mix to as thin as a dime and let it dry for 12 hours then cut. Also, don't try to cut the designs too small. The machine recommends 3 inches or larger for the intricate designs and I myself have found that one and a quarter is as small as I can go on letters.
