I saw a video where a lady was using a Michael Kors rolling pin. The pin looked as if it were an average sized rolling pin so I decided to purchase a few. I purchased the products from two separate vendors. They arrived at the same time but when I opened the packages, they were the size of a very long ink pin! It will take me two years to roll out enough fondant to cover cakes with! I'm not pleased. Does anyone know who sells them in larger sizes?
Roll out your fondant with your regular rolling pin, then go over it with your impression rolling pin.
That's a very good idea. I just didn't expect them to be so small! Size matters you know?
Bahahaha! Yes it does!
I looked at one seller. The description says 6.5 inches.
They are tiny @ maybenot I wish I hadn't bought them.
I know exactly how you feel - I just paid £35 for 19 embossed pins. I guess they'll be good for cupcake toppers and small details but even if it was already rolled out I think I'd struggle to do a large area.
I think that's what I'll use them for @ Steph_2009. I tried one out on my last cake only to have to try another look in the end. They don't work for large cakes. But the cake was beautiful and she loved it. : )
Those are tiny!
Too tiny @ Cakemum1
Tiny and cheated is the "American Way" for these corporations out there. Just like the cake mixes downsizing instead of increasing the price a little bit. You would probably be better off just buying a regular rolling pin.
@ remnant3333 Yes!! I was so shocked they began placing less cake mix in the boxes. You used to be able to get at least 3 8" rounds out of one box. Now? Only two. I think I'm just going to stick to my regular Wilton Fondant rolling pins and leave it at that. I'll have to use these Tiny Tims for cupcakes like @ Steph_2009.
The MK pin I saw on the video was huge. That's why I wanted these. Boy did I get screwed. Never again.
