Make Your Own Cheap Fondant Lifter - Page 6

post #76 of 84
Okay, i'm going to get my hubby to make me one and I have some questions...what did you all use to draw the big circles? What were the sizes of each circle? Is there really a youtube video of all of this? What was the easiest way to apply the contact paper? Do you contact both sides?
Am I sounding too stupid yet? Thanks for this great idea!

Over in the wilton forum they had someone there that had instructions for the Plexiglass version, I just pick mines up with my blue mat flip it over the cake and peel the mat off like Sharon does from Sugar Shack, works like a charm, then I can just fold my mat and put it away. I don't think I would have the space for this. It's a great idea though, maybe when I have my own shop one day and the space....

For those of you still watching this topic. The best tool to draw large circles with is a giant circle beam compass by Dascopro. Its not found in the craft stores so head to the hardware store.
Heres a product search on google for picture and range of prices. Lowest is $4.71 on Amazon:

http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=dascopro+giant+circle+beam+compass&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-USicon_surprised.giffficial&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=7312530750625606742&ei=UfKHTOWwM4e09QSbg4TeDg&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CC4Q8wIwAg#

Its great to use when making your cake bases, and hidden cake rounds. The largest round it can make is 10ft in diameter but it doesnt stop there....you can replace the rod with a longer rod (pvc, etc).

I love this idea but I have one question:

Covering the board with contact paper; surely that has to be done before the circles are cut otherwise it will be sealed shut and when you pick it up there'll be no hole in the middle to put the cake through?
