but being fondant it isn't, I think I'd eat the polymer clay first.

We used marzipan too; that tastes much better. :)

MMMMM. Marzipan. Reminds me of a cake that my parents made me. It looked like a pizza, but all of the toppings were made of marzipan, and the crust made from cake.

I'll post here what I posted to the EMS site: how does one "roll out" a triangular prism? I know how to roll out planar objects (with a rolling pin) and I guess you can roll out long cuboids by rolling and turning over, but how do you roll this shape? Or is "roll" a simple descriptive term for "lengthen by plastic deformation"?

I think they mean that you roll out a cylinder and then flatten three sides. Or at least that's how I'd start.

Yes, it starts as a roll that's flattened. For subsequent steps it is indeed "lengthen by plastic deformation."
