I'm a cake newbie, so I'm still acquiring supplies. I'm getting ready to place a GSA order and am thinking of adding a fondant smoother.

How necessary are they? Will they make a big difference in the way my cakes look? Right now I just smooth them with my hands. Would a fondant smoother make things a lot easier or help my cakes look a lot better?

They are absolutely needed for fondant. You need two to get sharp edges. I bought some from and really like them better than the wilton ones because they are bigger.

Get two. It really makes a world of difference. I use mine with the viva method for my buttercream, too.

I agree with Elcee, get two of them. I have the Wilton fondant smoothers and I love them. There's no way to get your fondant smooth without the smoothers. Using two when smoothing you're able to get sharper edges.

Playing devils advocate....and if they are wiltons, why would anyone order something online and pay shipping when you could get them from michaels with 40% off coupons???
Unless you dont have a michaels/joanns or hobby lobby around you.
Just food for thought.

We sell fondant smoothers from several manufacturers. My preference is are the JEM smoothers which are larger. I also like the smoothers from Fat Daddio's. Alan
