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.
If you are serious about flavor, I know you will love the Sweet Wise line of flavors as much as I do. In all my years as a chef, wedding cake designer, and instructor, I have never come across flavors as bold and true as the ones that I present to you now.
