I am constantly referring people on the Wilton.com forum to videos on your site. (The ones referred most often are "Cake Construction" and "How to cover a cake with fondant using The Mat". ) New bakers have SO many questions and your videos hit the cake nail right on the head!
I began cake decorating at the age of 56 with the first of the Wilton classes at my local Michaels store. Like many others, it has turned into a passion. I have spent hundreds of hours online learning and videos like those from Sweetwise, Inc. are a blessing.
(p.s. I bought The Mat, but haven't used it yet--I'm looking forward to my next fondant cake!)
Piping Gel is a wonderful multi purpose clear confectionary gel. Use Piping Gel to adhere gumpaste ribbons and borders to fondant cakes. Use Piping Gel to stabilize fresh heavy cream whipped cream so that water does not seperate from the whipped cream. Use Piping Gel to adhere beads, sugar pearls or sixlets in place. You can even color and use for piped writing. Brush onto chocolate or fondant before sprinkling with sanding sugar for a glittered appearance. 1 pound.
Perfect for Desserts, Mousses, Glazes, Jellies, Aspics and more.

No need to grease and flour your baking pan - Cake Release coats in one step. Simply spread Cake Release lightly on pan bottom and sides with a pastry brush and fill with batter. Cakes release every time, giving you the ideal surface for decorating.
Used to make smoother cordial fondant centers. Typically added to fondants or candy centers before dipping. A natural enzyme derived from yeast converts sugar (sucrose into invert sugar, thereby preventing crystallization of sugar in finished candy).
