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!)
The two ended tool is extremely useful in shaping flowers and adding texture to them. The larger end has a wide curved edge to add a curl to the edge or round a petal. The second side is thinner and comes to a point and is great for adding lines and texture to petals.
Curved round shape is ideal for drying gum paste, fondant and royal icing flowers and leaves. Openings in bottom center make it easy to pull wires through and adjust for the perfect drying position. Includes 2.5 and 3 in. diameter cups for drying everything from simple blossoms and briar roses to large daisies.
The fastest, easiest, and newest way to add an edible floral spray lace to any cake. Create beautiful embellishments using these molds with rolled fondant, chocolate paste, gumpaste and luster, pearl, or petal dusts. Size: 5" x 2" Instructions included. Kathy's Tip: I aso like to mold these and then cut them apart. Cover a cake with fondant, and then apply these spaced a half inch or so apart, and you have a beautiful, floral lace coverd cake! 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.
