I need to roll out a rather large piece of fondant and my counter or table isn't big enough. What do you use to roll it out on? Did you purchase a piece of formica or ??????????? Any ideas would be so helpful!
I was in your place a couple of weeks ago.
I had my hubby buy a piece of mdf and a piece of dry erase board and some rubber cement. He made a removable counter top that has no seams and is totally smooth. There are wood blocks on the underside to keep it from shifting when I am rolling out fondant or kneading dough.
The food color from kneading fondant does not stain it either. Formica is alot more expensive. This lifts off and slides behind my rolling island when it is not in use. It is my favorite new gadget!
Thanks! I do have a question, what is MDF? Where did you buy it and the dry erase board(walmart??)
mdf ( Medium-density fiberboard) can be found at Lowes or home depot. not at walmart. Just ask them for mdf board... it will be in the lumber area with the plywood sheathing, etc.
We got both in the building materials of Lowes but you can get it at Home Depot or any lumber /home center. The main thing you need to remember about the dry erase is that you cannot get it really wet and let it stay wet. Wipe it down then dry it off. Good Luck!
BeeBoos, would you be willing to post a picture of your setup?
I would love to see a pic BeeBoos! That sounds like an awesome idea!
