I have these tools also and I love them all except for the little wheel that is for the quilting effect- it has the flat wheel on one end and the wheel with teeth on the other end. I have found that this particular tool gets gummy easily and the wheel stops turning and/or falls out, and then when you take it to the sink to wash, you have to be very careful not to drop it (which is harder than it sounds) or else you have to try fish a tiny white piece of plastic out of the white soap suds, or let your water out and hope that the holes in your drain basket catch it before it goes down the drain. Needless to say at some point I am going to find a replacement for that particular tool, but other than that, I love the set. All the other tools I have tried from it have been great.

Excuse the run-on sentence icon_smile.gif

I agree completely! I use these tools so much they would have been worth double the price. My next cake purchase will most likely be a quilting tool, though. I've never even been able to get mine to turn properly and so haven't used it enough for it to get gummy icon_rolleyes.gif! Other than that, though, well worth it, especially with a coupon.

I decided it was too expensive to buy, for my first experiments with molding flowers. (Previously I'd just used my hands to mold figures and things like that.) So I went over to the aisle where they have the Fimo and Sculpey stuff, and found a kit of three double-ended tools for ten bucks.

I think I need a better veining tool, if I ever want to do more realistic flowers, but aside from that the clay tools worked beautifully. icon_smile.gif
