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.
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.
Dusting is fun when you're dusting fondant or gum paste decorations with the Wilton 2-Pc. Dusting Brush Set to add color or shine.

Food-safe brushes in two sizes have soft, synthetic bristles shaped to be used with Wilton Color Dust edible accents or Pearl Dust edible accents (sold separately).
Use the large brush to cover large areas of a fondant cake or to brush entire flowers with Color Dust edible accents or Pearl Dust edible accents.
Use the small brush to dust small details on fondant or gum paste decorations, adding realistic shading to your designs.
Before first and after each use, hand wash with warm water and gentle soap. Squeeze excess water. Allow to air dry thoroughly.
