Hi, does anybody know how 1, the layers are so thin and 2, haw to get the edge looking torn but still straight at the same time?

This is definitely fondant. Is a pasta roller used?

Thanks, Lisa.

1) just roll more!  Guess you could use a pasta roller but not necessary.  You may want to add a bit of stiffening agent to help it hold its shape.


2) I'd try lying the fondant flat then making a slight groove in the fondant in a straight line to weaken it in one spot, then carefully tear it.  That would probably make it tear along that line.

I use a pasta roller. To get the torn edges, you can try what Snowflake Bunny says, and you can try letting the strips dry a little bit, then use a ball tool on the edges quite hard, it will probably give a similar result to the picture.
