I have been doing cakes for 25 years and have always steered away from fondant, but I just had a bride insist on it and as I was searching youtube
I came across your video about the mat. I knew it would work because this is how I always made my pie crusts so I ordered the mat immediately. Needless to say it was a complete success. The cake was flawless! I am sending an attachment to share. Plus I used about 1/2 of the fondant that Wilton said was needed which saved me $$$ and made to overall texture of the cake more pleasant to eat!
If you use one special dust all the time (like super pearl), you will love this pump brush. It makes dusting cakes and decorations so easy and will literally pay for itself over time because you'll use far less dust as this brush prevents waste. In addition, you'll get a much more even (not so splotchy) look to the cake.
Add a special touch of color to your fondant-covered cake! It's easy and fun with these fine-bristle brushes and Brush-On Color or Icing Writer. Three tip designs-round, square and bevel-help you achieve different painted effects.
1. Use the round tip brush for lively streamers and dots. 2. Use the square tip brush for lace-look brush embroidery. Draw design with Icing Writer, then pull design outlines toward center with brush 3. Use the bevel tip brush to paint pretty free-hand designs.
