Hi. I don't have a clay gun so how do I get a perfectly round 'snake", for lack of a better word? thanks
Check out tonedna1 you tube video on how to make a pearl border, she has a pretty neat technique to roll a "snake" HTH
I use one of those flexible plastic cutting mats on top of my fondant. Roll the snake out a little to get it started, then place the mat on top and push it back and forth to roll the fondant underneath. Space your hands out on the mat and apply light pressure, adding more pressure as you go. Just like rolling it with your hands, but the mat underneath your hands creates a nice, even thickness. Did that make any sense at all?
I just watched tonedna1 you tube video and it was very informative. I will be using her method of using a pencil or dowel to make an even "snake" from now on. Wow!!!
