Fondant Beach Towel Tutorial

To make a beach towel you can use whatever colors you want, 2 colors, 3 colors or 4 colors like I did. 
You will need fondant, roller with 1/8" bands, Wilton large square cutter, paint brush, gumpaste glue or vodka for gluing.
1. Roll out your 1st color & cut with the square cutter.
2. Make a stripe by using the square cutter to cut your stripe.
3. Repeat steps 2 & 3 with your other fondant colors until you have 6 stripes.
4. Lay the stripes so they touch each other
5. Take the bands off your roller and roll the stripes gently til they all press together to form one piece of fondant. It is ok if the very edge aren't together, you will be cutting this off.
6. Using the large Wilton square cutter, cut out your towel.
7. Use your knife and pull up the end so you can roll the towel.  after 2 rolls, add some gumpaste glue so it won't unravel then roll one more time so it sticks.
8.  You can roll it as little or as much as you want. I left about 1/2 inch unrolled.
