Secondly, do you need a fondant roller? The smaller roller is really only good for rolling out small pieces of fondant or gum paste for decorations & flowers. In order to roll out a piece of fondant to cover even a 6x4 cake, you need the larger roller because you are rolling a piece of fondant that is 14 inches across.
Additionally, can I use a regular rolling pin for fondant?
Many people recommend a silicone rolling pin for rolling fondant to prevent the fondant from sticking to the pin, but I use a wooden rolling pin and it works just fine, I usually don't even need to dust the rolling pin. Roll the fondant ¼ inch thick for covering cakes as it will be easiest to handle.
How do you smooth out fondant without a smoother?
Use leftover fondant dough shaped into a ball, dip your hands in cornstarch or use a piece of thick foam to smooth out the fondant on the cake. Roll out prepared fondant 1/4-inch thick. Use cornstarch to dust the work surface while rolling the dough to prevent fondant from sticking.
