I'm with Icer...when I've got a 4 or 5 tier cake(or 7 tier like I just did a few weeks ago), I don't want to be totally exhausted by the time I roll out all of that fondant. Weight is the key thing and the plastic rollers and pvc pipe don't have it. I use the pvc to lift the fondant onto the tier, but it's just not heavy enough for rolling...at least not for me. I know others who like it fine. Just my 2 cents.
