I've been saving up to buy a pasta attachment for my Kitchenaid stand mixer. I doubt I'll be making a lot of pasta with it though, just use it for fondant. Do you have any recommendations? I've seen just the roller attachment pretty affordable, but once you get the cutters it adds up. Whenever I make figures I have trouble with hair so I thought having the fettuccine or linguine would help.

I'd get a clay extruder for the hair.

I bought my pasta attachment to use with fondant/gumpaste, but found that I ended up rolling things out more for that and have since used it for actual pasta.

I bought the set of 3 attachments - i always use the pasta attachment when wanting thin fondant - love it.

The other two i use for pasta - lolll

As TexasSugar wrote - get a clay extruder for the hair.

I did get an extruder but I've had no luck with it. I guess it was a cheap one. I'll have to try another kind.
Thanks

ohhh, icon_sad.gif .......... was your fondant soft enough to squeeze through easily?

LOVE the pasta attachment on my KA. I could never roll the gumpaste thin enough using a rolling pin. The attachment is worth it for me.
