Before when I made fondant figures it was really hard to make hair. i had to role one by one hair ad stick it to the head…Then i got myself u gun via web….
I’t took me quite some time to get it working the right way, but now we are “best friends”

I even wrote a review on my website if you are interested. Love your new cakes and the rose tutorial by the way!! Take care!

Is there an instruction booklet I can get or some pictures that show me what I need to do?

Thanks

Be careful not to make it too soft.

Well it was nice that you found out about the “not cookie press” I still would not exchange my sugarcraft gun 😉 I love to work with it.

I didn’t know about the shortening! I actually use shortening only on gum paste, but if you say it works with fondant too I will definitely try it! Gosh, why I didn’t read your post earlier! I made this 3D Buzz Lightyear yesterday night and it would have made my work so much easier! Thanks for sharing the tip!
Now if you don’t mind me sharing a tip- instead of gluing the ropes together, you can just refill the gun with more fondant from the top ( it unscrews there as well if you’ve noticed) before the one you’ve put is finished. That way the rope doesn’t need to be cut or glued. But still, it would have been better if it was a little bigger, so you don’t have to refill it so often.
About this lady that I told you about- it looks like a cookie press, but it isn’t. I was mislead by the appearance as well, she wrote me back and said she had it from her great-great-grandmother and she doesn’t have a clue if they are sold today, but it is definitely not a cookie press.

I am sorry if you have had such a hard work with your sugar gun. Yes it can be a pain if you dont mix your fondant paste with some drops of water and some white shortning (did you use that?) When I want to make ropes I fill it with paste and press until it is empty then I make som clean cuts (slanting?) and fill again if I still need more to make the rope. That way you can glue the ropes together nicely. In the beginning I too had damn problems but now with the fat/water I dont have problems.

I can see what you mean with the tool on the photo wich looks like a “cookie press” to me. Try look at Wilton/under cookies http://www.wilton.com/ But I am not sure that you get the same discs as you do with the gun.

I have a friend who use her sugarcraft gun almost on every single cake she makes and it is her most loved tool: http://www.flickr.com/photos/23014272@N05/

I would love to know if you find it better with a cookie press.

Louise.

I have the sugarcraft gun and it’s killing me! It works fine for smaller things like hair etc, but if you want longer ropes you have to refill it a hundred times! You can take a look at this one, that another lady has :
http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/2610183180103156991IJehtg
It is bigger and sturdier than this ( really) small plastic sugar gun. With all due respect to the inventor of this sugar gun, but for the really fine work you can use a regular piping bag, you don’t need a sugar gun for it. As for me, I wanted it because I need something to make the “ropes” with, like on this one:
http://tandoorisjourney.blogspot.com/2008/05/jewelry-box-cake-for-1st-communion.html
And I couldn’t hold my cup of coffee for 2 days after I used it on this cake, they ached so bad. Yes, I added a little bit of water, and the fondant was pliable, but still, the “unscrew-screw” process is so annoying! As per the other one I showed you, you fill it one time and you have a long enough rope to use around a whole 9 inch cake!
I’m trying to get this lady to tell me where she got hers from, if she does, let me know if you are interested, so I can post it here :-)
Other than that, now I admire even more the cakes you made with yours, since I know how much time and effort consuming it is.
You are simply amazing!
