My tool/tools may seem boring, but as I thought about what I used every time I did a cake, rolling fondant, doing gumpaste work/decorations/flowers etc., I realized, to me they are very essential.
1. My small trusty Wilton rolling pin…I can honestly say I’m pretty sure I’ve used this on almost every single project I’ve done.
2. My Wilton heavy duty hard plastic rolling pin….used for every large pieces of fondant I’ve had to roll. ( A gift from my niece for my very 1st wedding cake, which was hers )
3. My super heavy duty Mario Batali silicone covered rolling pin…this baby is so heavy, it rolls out fondant or gumpaste very easily and so thin. It was an expensive purchase at the time, but worth every penny. I use also to roll out pie pastry and cookie dough as well.
Quality rolling pins make less work for your arms, shoulders and back. We all need that. So to me, a good investment in your decorating arsenal, and a benefit in saving your overall health.
