I am in the market for a new rolling pin and can't decide which one to purchase for rolling out fondant to cover cakes. Let me know which one you recommend! Thanks.
I use a 26" long, heavy silicone one piece rolling pin. Nothing sticks to it, and it is easy to clean (not that it hardly needs cleaning, since nothing sticks to it!) The brand is Staedter (I am in Europe). Being heavy makes it easier to roll out the fondant in my opinion. Before that I had used a smaller silicone one but it was rubbish, and left lines on the fondant while I was rolling.
Others use a new piece of PVC pipe from the hardware store with success.
I also like using regular wooden rolling pins, but they are illegal most places now so you'd probably better not buy one of those.
I use a heavy aluminum rolling pin.
Here is the link to the one I have - I love it!
How are wooden rolling pins illegal?!
I use a SilPin....its a silicone rolling pin with handles because I can't manage the ones that are just straight without handles for some reason. I also have a SilPin Jr which is perfect for those little designs so I don't need as much workspace if I'm working on small pieces.
