I have to say, I LOVE my mat. Don't know how I would live without it. Almost more useful is the video showing usage. Kathy makes everything she does look so easy. I have just tried the Swiss Buttercream. Fantastic. I would love to know where you can get the point and shoot thermometer with no probe. I may be going on my Christmas list!
Is known that oil and water don't mix. So in order to colour chocolate you can't use gel paste or airbrush colors as they are water based. AmeriColor oil candy colors are specially formulated to work with high fat products like white and dark chocolate. They are also perfect for compound chocolate (candy melts, chocolate wafers).
