I have the large extruder used by Jennifer Dontz for her cake decorating. I've never used (became disabled before was able to use it). If anyone is interested I paid $80 for it and am asking $45. Please email me to or call me at 973-641-9920. I will be able to ship it if necessary.   Miriam Rothstein

Cake is for March 6th, I'M AT THE HOSPITAL SINCE YESTERDAY! Cake, frosting, filling are ready; but yesterday shoveled snow and ended up in the hospital. I need some advise as to how to prepare the silhouettes (LOOK AT THE ATTACHMENT BELOW). Any ideas as to how to create/dry out them? They're supposed to be stocked on top of the cake which is supposed to be the dancing floor. Thanks for any advise. P.S. I HOPE TO GET OUT OF THE HOSPITAL TOMORROW.......thank you
First step, prepare the board. Roll fondant the right size and lightly moist the board with water proceeding to cover it.
