I have to say, I LOVE my mat. Don't know how I would live without it. Almost more useful is the video showing usage. Kathy makes everything she does look so easy. I have just tried the Swiss Buttercream. Fantastic. I would love to know where you can get the point and shoot thermometer with no probe. I may be going on my Christmas list!
Eye droppers are used with the 1 dram LorAnn flavorings. Some bakers will add approximately 3 eyedroppers full of the flavorings to a 6 cup batch of frosting. Also about 3 eyedroppers full to marshmallow fondant (before you add the powdered sugar)
