I had the Home Mat in my cart but took it out. I thought it over again and, although hesitant, put it back in. I recently tried it out and now know with certainty this will be my "go-to" forever mat. I did not have to worry about the fondant sticking to the rolling pin, the dimensions became even more clear as I rolled, and, just as described, I was able to release the fondant from the mat and handle it with one hand. Being able to position the fondant where needed was a novice's dream.
I absolutely LOVE this product.
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)
