best rolling pin for fondant

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
I've been tolerating my 20" Wilton rolling pin for waaaay too long now. I can't stand the thought of rolling that greasy thing for one more cake.

What's your very favorite rolling pin, preferably with handles?

I'm looking to replace mine as well ... good thing I came across this thread. Would love to find a good aluminum pin, affordable too!

Where I took my class at, the lady used a wooden one.. I tried that I didn't like it.. So I buy the wilton one with the rings on it to measure how thick the fondant is suppose to be.. I like that one alot.

A couple of years ago I took the Wilton classes and they were just setting the stuff out for fondant at my store. Well someone in my class had just purchased the rolling pin and I hated it. Well I shopped around and I came up with the BEST rolling pin ever and all I paid was $2.00. I went to Home Depo and bought a 2 foot piece of PVC piping. came home washed it very well and took it with me to the next class. Everyone had gone out and bought the Wilton one and everyone hated it just like I did. In the end everyone is class was borowing my rolling pin because it was so smooth and it worked wonderful. Best investment I ever made, lol. thumbs_up.gif

Hope it helps.

I have one of these
http://www.everten.com.au/product/sil-pin-basic-rolling-pin-green.html

Glides so smoothly - and because of the *roller handles* you don't get achey arms when rolling alot of Fondant etc.

By using a non stick mat and this rolling pin - i never have to use flour.

I have a Sil-pin too. It's great. I still use the small Wilton rolling pin for small things, though.

This is on my cake decorating supply list of next thing to buy! Last time I used my wilton fondant roller I pinched a vein in my wrist and busted! It was very painful! I can't wait to purchase this one! Thanks for sharing!

I've seen this huge stainless steel rolling pin at costco a while back. It's about $25 i believe. I felt like I should have gotten it instead of this wilton one.

Marble with handles. I think the weight helps to roll out the fondant with ease. I don't "work" when I roll out my chocolate fondant.
