I ordered "the mat" a few months ago but never used it. I really don't like the taste of fondant so I've always talked people out of the fondant covered cakes. Plus I am good with butter cream and can get it to look as good as fondant(but it takes a while to do that).
A couple of weeks ago I helped a friend with a wedding cake and she was using your "Elite" fondant icing, I liked the taste of it better than the Wilton brand that I have used in the past. So this past weekend I had a customer that just had to have a fondant covered cake. I ordered your Elite fondant and your Satin Ice fondant and thought I might as well try out my mat.
The Mat may just be the best tool I have purchased in the last 20 years! It was very easy to use and very fast. Rolling out the fondant was so easy after watching your video.
My mat is the old one without the lines printed on it so I'm going to cut it up for to use on small projects and order a new one with the lines printed on it for the bigger cakes.
Thanks for a great store, web site and training videos!
I'll be delivering a cake to Nashville next month, so I'll be sure and stop in and load up while I'm in town.
Easily create beautiful uniform strings of pearls using gumpaste or even poured sugar. This mold is resistant to rips and tears and best of all, they are highly detailed and nothing sticks to them!! This mold is very soft and flexible and can easily go from as high as 450 degrees to the freezer without affecting the mold. This mold is a bargain in that it gives you BOTH sizes of these beautiful, chunky pearl strands! Kathy's Tip: Be sure to make your gumpaste ahead of time (by adding Tylose Powder to your Fondant), wrap it up and let it sit for 20-30 minutes so it can firm up slightly. Then place it into the mold, and it will come out much more easily, without stretching.
One of Kathy's favorite molds! Incredible, life-like detail down to the toes and fingers. The curve of the sweet little lips and precious ears will astound you - The detail in this mold is extraordinary! This mold is so flexible, your figure will come out with every curve in shape. The mold is so realistic, and best of all, nothing sticks to it!! This mold is very soft and flexible and can easily go from as high as 450 degrees to the freezer without affecting the mold! Kathy's Tip: Be sure to make your gumpaste ahead of time (by adding Tylose Powder to your Fondant), wrap it up and let it sit for 20-30 minutes so it can firm up slightly. Then place it into the mold, and it will come out much more easily, without stretching. Letting it sit in the mold for just a minute will help it come out even easier. This mold is a barigain: you get THREE sizes of baby, from a little one that is perfect on a cupcake to the largest, perfect for a cake. Start with the proper color of flesh tone gumpaste for your baby, and finish with a light touch of super pearl dust for an angelic finish!
