Help! I'm new to using fondant, and I just tried cutting 5 inch long stripes out of fondant. I measured, lined everything up, but when I went to cut with my cutting wheel, the fondant splooshed out and the end went off to the opposite side. So my stripes ended up kind of wavy.
add a little powdered tylose to the fondant, roll it out and let it sit 5 minutes before you cut. It will be stiffer and more stable. HTH
Thank you! I'll try that next time.
Muakkpsi, here's another option for your files - make 'fabric' out of SugarVeil Icing, and use scissors to cut strips from SugarVeil for your cake stripes. Here's a tutorial that shows this and several other techniques: http://www.sugarveil.com/information/pdf/amcd-flowerfaces.pdf
