luzmariasida,

That is about the largest one I have seen unless you go to a commercial Sheeter. Then you are going to be spending thousands..... They have a couple of those on ebay right now starting at $2900.00. YIKES! Have you tried bunnywomans and mmumsies recommendations on getting some clear vinyl at your local WM and rolling your fondant in between it? It has made a big difference for me.

You'll want to do a google search for a commercial sheeter. This is the cheapest one I found, but it's an auction.
Unless you are making tons of fondant cakes in a month, it's a costly tool. Wishing you the best!

Of course nothing is said about shipping.

Wow !!! very expensive, it's just that i have rolled fondant on the 16 inch cake and it's so hard to roll and when picking up it starts tearing and i always have to do it like 4 times always, whats the best advice to pick up the fondant when rolled up?

I have used several methods. For larger cakes, I use the 2nd method most often.

-Rolling the fondant up on the 20" rolling pin.
-Picking up my vinyl mat and flipping it over.
-Have a friend and you both lift quickly on opposite sides.

She said it makes her hands tired, so what good is putting the fondant between 2 sheets of wax paper? She still has to roll it out by hand.

I'm sure in the three and half years since this was posted, she figured something out.

But welcome to the forums.

You need "The Mat"! I think it's
"sweetwise.com" and there is a video of it. It has made my fondant cakes so much easier.
