Extruder doesn't make big enough round hole....

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I want to make bag handles but my extruder doesn't have a big enough hole to make them fat.what would I use instead..Just roll it like a snake by hand? This usually ends up uneven...

Any suggestions?

Thanks thumbs_up.gif

Make a couple of ropes from the extruder and then put them together to get thickness you want. It is not perfect but at least it will be closer in even thickness than rolling snakes by hand, which never works for me.

Do you have any dowels or pens in the required thickness?

To make even snakes you can roll them between two dowels or anything similar of the thickness you need with a board on top. Maybe a cake board or anything sturdy. For shorter items I use those little boards that came with the Wilton kits.

Edna shows this in one of her tutorials. Not sure which one now. But its easier to show than to try explaining.

Will it be big enough if you use the extruder without a disc in it?

^ I was just about to mention Edna's tutorial. I'll post the link if I can find it.

I wonder if you could make your own little disc for your extruder. Maybe out of one of those flexible cutting boards and an exacto knife?

you can make a long rope with even thickness by rolling out your fondant using the fondant smoothers or even a cake board.

Leave the disc out of the extruder and you will have a fat rope
