I need to make an extruder to create 1/3 inch thick 'hair' out of fondant or modeling chocolate. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

How about a Ricer? The holes are much bigger. I have a juice press that also has bigger holes. Just a thought.

With the 40% off coupon, they are so cheap at Hobby Lobby, not worth making...unless you are in the middle of a cake emergency? The green Makin model is under $25 and has 20 discs.

A strong piping bag with a round tip? I know some people pipe fondant.

I was watching the Ultimate Cake Challenge the other day and one of the cake artist used the caulk gun method like in the video above.

Jennifer Dontz from sugar delites has a video that used a large extruder. It was huge, but I cannot remember where she said to get it from. It was similar to a caulk gun but was solid. You could possibly go to her sight and ask her. She is very helpful.
