I got a Makin Clay Extruder to use for a cake I made last week after seeing several posts about them. I had a problem, though. I used one of the small plates that extrudes a circular rope to make black stripes on the side of a cake. I worked with the fondant till it was a good consistency. It felt right...the way fondant should feel. When I started using the extruder, every single stripe came out very fragile and with little striations all over. I don't know what I did wrong. Should I bee greasing the plate or fondant? Something else? I'm not sure how to fix the problem, but I know the extruders have to work, because I've seen some great results from other people! Thanks!
