Thus far I have never used a fondant smoother when covering my cakes. I just use my palm and rub away. For those who use them...Does a smoother make a world of difference????

I wouldn't do without one....and they are a relatively cheap cake toy.

It does for me but maybe I am just heavy handed. Once I smooth the fondant with my hand I have to use a smoother to get the unevenness out.

But having had a quick look at your pictures, your cakes look lovely and smooth. I think it's great that you can achieve that without a smoother.

Most definitely...invest in 2, one for each hand icon_smile.gif.

I was beginning to wonder if I was a weirdo or something for not using them...seems everybody does.

If and when I buy them does brand matter??

Should I buy plain smoothers or edgers as well??

I do fine with 2 regular smoothers. My favorite:

They're by JEM, are large, and come in a set of 2. Out of stock at right now, but worth trying to locate or just wait.

Your fondant is very smooth!

The only thing I think, in your case, that a fondant smoother might help with is a little sharper corners on the top (if you want)....

I always smooth it by hand and then finish up with a smoother.
