Fondant Ribbon Cutter – Designed for Easy Use and Great Results!

April 17th, 2012 by Paula Ivancicts

When I saw the new Fondant Ribbon Cutter, I had to dig right in and try it! There are so many things to love about it! To name a few: the new storage case, the redesigned handle, the release button.

Before experimenting with the new ribbon cutter, I familiarized myself with the updated tool. The ribbon cutter features:

  • Three spacers: 1 in., 1/2 in. and 1/4 in.
  • Three cutting wheels: straight, wavy, zigzag
  • Two locks: ensures wheels and spacers do not shift
  • Roller handle with easy button release
  • Decorate Smart storage case: keeps all parts safe and secure

Fondant Ribbon Cutter

My first project using the ribbon cutter was Cherry Pie Cupcakes. After baking and icing the cupcakes, I stacked red candy coated chocolate pieces on top of the icing to create “cherries.” Next time, I may add red icing color to my icing to avoid having white icing peek through.

Next, I kneaded light brown fondant, and used confectioner’s sugar and a fondant roller to roll out the fondant. It was super easy to use the straight edge wheels alternating them with the 1/4” spacers, then adding the 1” spacers and putting the locking pieces in place from the ribbon cutter.

I rolled that over my fondant to create the strips needed for my lattice pie top. I laid out the strips and weaved them by alternating them. I used a cookie spatula to lift the woven top and placed that on top of the “cherries.” I then took some of the fondant and rolled out a rope, which I placed around the top of the pie. I used a fork to crimp the end of the pie crust.

Using the ribbon cutter made this project as easy as pie! Have you tried a fondant ribbon cutter?

    I have the original fondant ribbon cutter. I see the new on has a storage case. Can the case be purchased separately. I’d love to be able to organize and store mine instead of dumping the pieces into a compartment of the Ultimate Tool Caddy.

      Hi Jayn!
      Thank you for posting. Unfortunately, the storage case is only available with this new Fondant Ribbon Cutter.

    Hi, I had the original fondant ribbon cutter and eventually threw it away because it cut so poorly. Has the quality of the “blade” improved so that it cuts sharper? From the photo of the “pie”, it looks like it still creates rough edges, but I’d hope that this was looked into, as most professional cake decorators that I know, like me, have abandoned the Wilton fondant cutter for this very reason. I am currently using a different multi ribbon cutter, but would like to go back to a Wilton one (for the other advantages highlighted in the new product video), if the clean cutting issue was improved upon. Thanks!

    I was hoping that when you showed how these worked you would show us the finished product. You only showed how the roller rolled over the fondant, but you didn’t let us see what the imprint looked like or how well the cutter cuts the fondant. It made me leary about buying these products like you were hiding the flaws.

      You are so right!!! I got it and the grip is excellent and there is no hassle in assembling it…however; the cut is still the same and creates unclean edges:( I threw out my old wilton ribbon cutter and i am unhappy with the cutting results of this one:( Back to the small FMM one…
