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.
The detail in this mold is extraordinary! This mold is so flexible, your flowers will come out with every petal 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 force it into the mold with the back of the Fondant Knife, and it will come out much more easily, without stretching. Using the Fondant Knife allows you to force the gumpaste into every tiny little detail, and then letting it sit in the mold for just a minute will help it come out even easier.
