I just got one today at Michaels! I settled on the plunger one instead of the crank. I think I'll be buying the crank one if I use it enough, but it was 3 times more expensive. I put a tiny bit of Crisco in the tube to help the fondant glide through a little better. With the 50% off coupon, it was $5.50.

I think it was called Darico brand small silver plunger one. I am gonna have to try adding Crisco in it see if that helps. The palm of my hand hurts when i try to push out. Need to get a crank.

I strongly recommend the one from Michael's that has the crank. It's much easier on your hands. Comes in very handy. Also, use very fresh fondant. thumbs_up.gif

Would a person even consider spraying the inside with Pam spray? Or maybe that would change the fondant? Just thinking out loud! lol I would probably use good ol crisco tried and true! thanks for the input on these, very helpful!

I have heard that using cornstarch in the extruder helps more than shortening.
"Cake or death?" "Eh, cake please." "Very well! Give him cake!" "Oh, thanks very much. It's very nice."
"You! Cake or death?" "Uh, cake for me, too, please." "Very well! Give him cake, too! We're gonna run out of cake at this rate."

I'm definitely going to try that! I was also using some old leftover fondant because I was too impatient to try it out when I got home.

Fresh fondant makes all the difference. I learned this the hard way!

I have a Makins green extruder and it is worth every penny. I think Tonedna has a youtube tutorial on how to use it and why it's the best. I use it a lot!

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

I saw this on the WE TV show amazing cakes and then made one like it. I bought a heavy duty caulk gun, piece of pvc to fit in it, a cap and solid round disk. I had my hubby drill a hole in the end of the cap, screwed it on the pipe and then placed it in the gun. yes, I washed and sanitized it before I used it but it works great and cost me less than $10. However, i need to buy more caps so that we can create various designs. The one we made only does the long rope.
