I've read the tutorial on making chocolate cigarellos - Nati's way. My question is where do I find acetate? Do they sell it at craft stores? I have no idea where to look. Anybody know?

I would think you could get it at a craft store. I don't know for sure. Here is a bump.

On top of being a beginner cake decorator, I am a papercrafter (scrapbooking and cardmaking). I use acetate for some bags that I do. You can get it at a craft store or you can get it in the office supply store. Do you remember those overhead projectors that teachers used in school? I don't think they use those anymore. Anyway, the transparencies used with the projectors are acetate. On my papercrafting forums, people mention getting these from public schools as they have a ton of these left over and are looking at ways to get rid of them. I guess since it is plastic no one wants to put them in the landfill. If you have a friend or relative in the school system ask them if they have seen any.

Good luck!
