use eaither sugar or corstarch generously before running it threw the machine or it will stick to the metal. and u often have to run ur roller over the fondant afterwards because it tends to get a weird texture on it if any part starts to kinda stick to it. also if u are trying to do a large piece its nice to have an extra set of hands to help u feed it threw. hope that helps! i just got mine at christmas!
