I just made my first wedding cake, I work out of my house and I recently purchased the mat from you guys because the demonstration on YouTube was great! I thought....I have to try this thing. I think covering the cake with fondant is always the hardest thing when making a cake. It's hard to keep your table sanitary (and I have a dog... With lots of hair) and its hard to roll it out evenly and quickly without it drying out and getting 10x sugar everywhere. Let me tell you, the mat is amazing! It saved me time and was so easy to use with professional results! I followed your demonstration and it worked exactly like you said! It was some of the best money I ever spent and I just want to thank you for making my cake decorating a lot easier! I absolutely love it! :)
