Thanks so much for sharing! I have friends in London who are planning on moving back to the States in August. Not sure I can wait that long, but I'll try. I'll have to see if they'd be willing to get me some, and pack 'em up with their household when the US Airforce moves them back here. icon_smile.gif

That's a pretty cool looking tool. I bet we could go to the hardware store & find something similar to this. I looks kinda like a door hinge w/out the screws. Not bad for just $16. Thanks for sharing Gingerela~ icon_smile.gif

Really great clean corners. I have been thinking about ordering these for ages, but I use IMBC and am just not sure if they will work with it. Maybe if I really chilled or partially froze the cake it might help.

That is a British website, you have to consider postage, which is quite expensive.

debster, that is 6 pounds sterling. Then you would have to pay shipping from England. I think Global Sugar is a better deal @ $16 & the shipping is so reasonable from them.

Her website isn't up yet but I will post more tomorrow after I contact her. The one I couldn't get from Global Sugar Art was purchased at Design A Cake (www.design-a-cake.co.uk/). I agree that it is cheaper to buy it here since the postage from the UK here can really add up. Six pounds is roughly $12 US. Once you add shipping and tarifs, it's cheaper to buy it from GSA.

I do know that her husband makes these by hand with special equipment they've had specially made. I like the large handle that these tools have since it makes it very easy to grip - easier than a standard fondant smoother.

Shirley, other than today, I've only used IMBC as well and I will not be coming over to the buttercream side anytime soon... LOL.

I don't think it would work with IMBC unless it were very chilled like you said. Definitely won't work with the Viva, darn it! But if I find a way, I will share for certain.

I'm sure I will have an a-ha moment after asking this but could you post exactly what IMBC is? ThanksQ!

If you chilled the IMBC (Italian Merengue Buttercream) and used parchment paper on it and then used these... maybe it would work???

I love using these edgers in fondant and it is good to know they work well in buttercream too.

There are actually several of them on that ...Piece of Cake site..... At $12 U.S. plus shipping a pop though..... ouch. Maybe someone could make a deal with Valerie and we could buy them in bulk. Or one of us could do it and put it on E-Bay....
