hi, has anyone ever used a pasta machine to make fondant the desired thickness? I just thought of it and WONDERED if it would work for smaller cut shapes or for use on cookies. I make many cookies using rolled fondant and I have always used a fondant roller, even tried those rubber spacers, but it does not always come out the perfect thickness. Thank you for any input !

As long as you don't need anything wider than your pasta roller, it works great. it is also fabulous for gumpaste petals, nice and thin.

i use it for cookies all the time, and for any small pieces that i need, rarely do i cover a whole cake with fondant, so the pasta machine gets used alot

Don't mean to hijack the post, but I need a tip on cleaning it for first use...
I bought one at michaels, but haven't been able to use it yet - I keep trying to clean it, but it leaves grease marks on the fondant. I've run soapy cloths through, and fondant about 10 times. Any tips?
