Cathy, had to tell you how much I love my Home Mat. Just completed a 22 cake order using Satin Ice fondant and The Mat. Could not have done what I did without this great product. Was able to knead, roll and cover a 6" 2 layer cake in less than 5 minutes..a new record for me. I have all 3 sizes of The Mat and use them constantly. Thanks for a great product..and super video
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. To help the ends meet at the joints, cut the rope on the angle that exists where it twists, near the end.
