I bought The Mat for my very first try with fondant and it was amazing.
The fondant was perfect on the 8-inch round cake, no bubbles, no ruffles, no ridges. The Mat is a must for anyone working with fondant, amateur or professional. Why complicate matters when there's such a simple, fool-proof tool! I am a self-taught lifelong hobbyist but I strive for professional-level results and I am glad I bought The Mat for my first time working with fondant.
Silver Shimmer Ribbons have a satin, shiny finish. When placed on food, edible images absorb moisture and become soft and are easy to cut through for service. Sold in Set of # strips, each strip is 1" high x 10" long. HINT: To determine how many inches you will need to go around a round cake, multiply the diameter of your cake times 3.14.
This set is enough to cover 9" circle cake or 7" square cake.
