I use my tiny one for little things...but if you want on that does ONE LONG piece, this baby is the one!!! I show it in my DVD # 2....

It's totally awesome! Highly recommend it. You also can put the disks from the little gun in back of the big hole disk that comes with this, adapting it for use with the tiny disks. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!

If you have questions, just e-mail me! Here's the link:

Here is the link to the one I use.


I use gumpaste all the time. First I knead it with a little bit of shortening and then quickly dip it in warm water and knead it again and the consistancy should be like a chewing gum. Then use it in the extruder.

IMO this one is the ultimate (I tried others but found the parts are too cheaply made and break):


I do similar to the previous poster; knead in shortening until you have a very soft consistency.
