How thick do you roll your fondant or gumpaste when making daisies? Would using a fondant roller be okay?

You need to get it as thin as you canicon_smile.gif It should be paper thin. Use gumpaste. Nic Lodge's recipe is the besticon_smile.gif If it has to be fondant, then add some GumTex or Tylose to it to strength it.

When using gumpaste, ideally you should be able to lay it over a piece of paper and read what's on the paper through the gumpaste. It can be more difficult to use when it's this thin, but for the most life-like flowers, this is the thickness you look for. Personally, my only preference for a roller is a smooth texture (non-wood) and I usually will use a smaller roller for small pieces, large roller for large pieces. Good luck!
