I am new to cake decorating and not sure how to explain, but saw on TV a fondant press that pressed the fondant out in the shape of a "pencil" so it can be put on a cake to look like a swirl or decoration. Does anyone know what I am talking about and what it's called and where to find out?
Could it have been an extruder? They have discs that are round and you end up with a rope of fondant.
Yep, that's an extruder.
Which one is the best to get and where? I have been thinking about getting one and figure the after christmas sales might be kind to my wallet..
Is an extruder the same as the sugarcraft gun? I was looking to make rope etc. to put on a cake with fondant. If it is, does anyone have any experience with the sugarcraft vs. the ceramic clay gun?
I have the Makins Green "T" extruder, and love it. Some Michaels stores carry it. Lots of discs to choose from for using it. It isn't like the SC one - the Makins one is easier on your hands!
