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.
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.
