I have tried to make long strips of fondant but can't seem to get them straight. What supplies do you use to cut fondant? I just use a ruler and very sharp knife. But somehow this is not working for me.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

You should get this ribbon cutter. It's definitely worth the money. I'm so glad I bought mine. It saves a ton of time since I don't have to measure my strips or scrap them when they come out crooked anymore.

I have this little strip cutter tool that you can adjust the's made by FMM, called the multi strip cutter or something like that. It also helps to cut with a rotary cutter. It doesn't "pull" as much as a knife. It will probably be a lot easier for you to find the rotary cutter...I had to order the strip cutter online.

The wilton one doesn't work well don't bother with that one.

I use a pizza cutter and a ruler or template I cut from cardstock. I have purchased several of the clear plastic rulers (like 10 cents a piece) you see everywhere and that is the width of most of my ribbons.

I use the pizzacutter and ruler too but I still can't seem to end up with straight lines. Maybe it is just more practice that I need...

The FMM cutter does look user friendly. Too bad I can't buy it around where I live. They do have the Wilton cutter but I will not waste money on that if it doesn't work well.
