Add subtle textures to fondant using our Fondant Ribbon Cutter/Embosser. This easy-to-use tool imprints elegant designs as it cuts fondant strips in a variety of widths and also imprints a beaded edge or textured striping. It's another great way to add a beautiful dimensional look to fondant cakes.
The Fondant Ribbon Cutter/Embosser includes cutting wheels in straight, wavy and zigzag shapes, embossing wheels in striped and beaded styles, and spacers in multiple widths to help you adjust the width of the fondant strips. Arrange wheels on work surface to create the look you want. Place the cutting wheels to the outside of the embossing wheels. Add spacers between wheels to fill the width of the 4 in. roller*. Slide wheels and spacers on the roller.
Position washer and wing nut on end of roller to secure the wheels.
Use a rolling pin to roll out fondant on Roll & Cut Mat sprinkled with cornstarch. We suggest brushing the assembled roller with shortening for easy release. Roll the roller over fondant to cut and imprint strips. Attach strips to cake or make bows following instructions.
* Note: When using the beaded embossing wheel, load onto roller so that it fits over the center rim of the cutting wheel.
Fondant ropes are an easy way to add dimension and color to a project. The twisted texture of the rope is outstanding for a cake border, garlands or shaped into candies like candy canes and lollipops. Can be used with the natural twisting look or smoothed out; it can have a tailored look or be fun and casual.
