I kind of regret this purchase. I bought it when I was taking a Wilton cake class but I wish I hadn't bought it because my wooden rolling pin works just as good (teacher advised us not to use wooden rolling pins because it wouldn't come out smooth, BUT for large pieces of fondant meant to cover a cake you use the side on the bottom). I would advise just trying out using your wooden rolling pin OR buy one of the other Wilton rolling pins that has handles. Not having handles is reeeeaally hard on your hands. However, the small rolling pin that Wilton sells for rolling smaller pieces is something I would recommend.
