Today i went to the shops with my mum and i bought those flower cookie cutters so i could do flowers on cake and stuff but the thing is i forgot to get the ball tool. Is there something else i could use instead of the ball tool? thanks

i watch a guy at ices convention thining edges of g/p rose petals with half of one of the small plastic easter eggs. You can glue a marble on  the end of a dowel rod(something like that) and use that. I have one  from Earlene  Moore's class some years back. hth

I was thinking about using my little bro's marbles then thought it'll be stupid but hearing from someone else makes me feel better icon_smile.gif

I use a wine bottle stopper that has a smooth metal ball on the end.  It doesn't have a long handle, but it fits my hand and it doesn't tear like my plastic ball tool.  Here's an example:  http://www.amazon.com/Couture-Handbag-Bottle-Stopper-Inlaid/dp/B00382YWB0/ref=sr_1_136?ie=UTF8&qid=1364185007&sr=8-136&keywords=wine+stopper

Maybe you could use a small stainless steel measuring spoon?

Mine are pretty round and may do the trick!
