I do have it and I do use it on almost every fondant cake. I have a pizza cutter as well as other types of wheel type cutters that I use as well.

Yes, the tool set is an excellent buy also works very well with modeling chocolate and chocolate work.
Happy Baking and Decorating,

I am not a fan of the wheel tool in the gumpaste set from wilton, mine always sticks and gives me issues. I picked up one from either JEM or PME (it has a yellow handle) and it was worth the $8 I spent on it. Otherwise the rest of the set is wonderful and I use it for just about everything. If you are looking for a treat though, you may want to consider picking up a stainless steel ball tool.

DITTO -exactly what I was going to say! The stainless steel ball tool has no seams so it does not catch on your gumpaste. Highly recommended.


Shannie, the cutter you mentions is PME.... I also have their Quilting tool as I find the Wilton one sticks as well. It was amazing to see the difference in how they "flow."

Wilton does not have a stainless steel, but if you'd like a good one there is a fantastic set in the Sculpy aisle in Michaels. It has three different sizes. (edited to add that they have black handles if you go looking for them.) As well... you could probably use a coupon for a discount. There are a lot of really great items in the clay aisle that one may use for caking!

Otherwise, ordering off a website such as Global Sugar Art would be your best bet.

I use my Wilton gumpaste tool set every day. Ditto on the wheel tool sadly. I use another brand for that. My ball tools are by Sculpey that I bought at Michaels. There are three in the set for about $9, but I used a 50% coupon when I bought them.

I use the gumpaste tools all the time, but I recently purchased the poinsettia dvd by Edna. she sells the metal ball tool. I just got it and haven't used it. But if she recommends it, I am sure it will be great.

Idk they had some at Michaels, I can't wait to look now. I was just thinking about picking up a smaller ball tool. My teacher told me to get one when she taught me 10 years ago, I'm so glad I did. I can't remember the size, I want to say it's 1/2" and 5/8" w/e it is it has done well for me all these years, just looking for one for smaller ruffles, flowers and leaves now icon_smile.gif
I'm pretty sure I got mine from the sugarcraft catalog, Sugarcraft.com. Mine has a wodden handle.

The ones at Michaels are in the clay section. The brand is Sculpey. Not the Wilton aisle.
