I am constantly referring people on the Wilton.com forum to videos on your site. (The ones referred most often are "Cake Construction" and "How to cover a cake with fondant using The Mat". ) New bakers have SO many questions and your videos hit the cake nail right on the head!
I began cake decorating at the age of 56 with the first of the Wilton classes at my local Michaels store. Like many others, it has turned into a passion. I have spent hundreds of hours online learning and videos like those from Sweetwise, Inc. are a blessing.
(p.s. I bought The Mat, but haven't used it yet--I'm looking forward to my next fondant cake!)

Create a baby bootie from gum paste to adorn a cake for a baby shower or baby's first birthday. After rolling the gum paste, use these cutters to form the individual components of the baby bootie and then assemble. Roll the gum paste with a patterned roller to create a textured finish, or colour the gum paste or dust the finished booties with dusting powders to make each bootie unique.
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!
