I bought The Mat for my very first try with fondant and it was amazing.
The fondant was perfect on the 8-inch round cake, no bubbles, no ruffles, no ridges. The Mat is a must for anyone working with fondant, amateur or professional. Why complicate matters when there's such a simple, fool-proof tool! I am a self-taught lifelong hobbyist but I strive for professional-level results and I am glad I bought The Mat for my first time working with fondant.
Sturdy, high quality, cake box and silver foil wrapped cake board. The box measures 12" X 12" X 5 7/8". The box comes with a separate lid that you can use to add an additional 2 inches height for a tall cake box that will accommodate a 7 ½ tall cake. Cake Cards are approximately 1/8" thick and very, very sturdy. Each Cake Card and box is shrink wrapped together.
