A must have for a first timer!
I just received my mat last Monday and was excited to use it for my 1st fondant attempt that Wednesday. I was really nervous about trying fondant, but thought "The Mat' seemed like it would help. It was amazing! I think that's the only thing that kept me sane through the process. It's so easy to use and made my cakes look perfect! Thank you for such a great product!!

Worth every penny!
Hi, used The Mat for the first time yesterday. Have to say I was a little nervous with regards to the seasoning of the mat and whether it was going to work. I shouldn't have worried! It is by far the easiest piece of equipment with the most satisfying of results. Did a dummy run for a wedding cake I am doing. Result: no tears, sugarpaste (fondant) wasn't dry from all the icing sugar add for rolling and no cracks - anywhere! Smooth finish with little smoothing needed. Took mu time and didn't feel pressured as it was protected from the elements.
So glad you ship to the UK. I've been telling anyone about it!
Would be good to get one with measurements but VERY happy with this one.

makes covering a cake easy!!
I live in the UK so the cheaper postage cost more than the mat but still i thought my total balance was very cheap. i had a few problems with attracting fibres etc and with the 2 mats gripping together at first. I watched the video explaining how to solve your problems and im getting better. it definitley gets easier to use after its been used more. i can now get my fondant on my cake without it drying out from using icing sugar or tearing !!!! I would definitely reccomend this!!!!
I also had a few questions i wanted to ask before i purchased so emailed via the 'contact us' and received a response the same day. Great service all round!!!

good news! the Mat arrived Thursday and I had to let you know how VERY pleased I am with it. It does everything you claim it does, is so easy to use and makes fondanting a cake a thing of ease and beauty! No more stressful hours trying to get the fondant rolled and positioned, the video that shows how to use the Mat is great and has helped me with not only rolling out the fondant but the technique of getting good edges....

I no longer suffer from "fondant-stress-related disorder!
This mat has been a God's sent gift for my husband and I. My only regret is that I didn't buy it two years ago!

The Best Investment
I just received the mat last week and use it for the first time on Saturday. By far, THE BEST investment I have made for my start up business. So good, in fact, I am ordering another today. How soon do you think one with measurements will be available? That will make three.

Thank you for such an amazing product.
I wanted to take the time to say thank you for such an amazing product. I used the mat to cover a 3 tier wedding cake w/ fondant last Saturday and it was by far the least stress that I've ever experienced covering a cake ... no tears from lifting the fondant ... I was able to see the exact placement prior to releasing the fondant, I was able to add more fondant to the mat to achieve the size that I needed without having to re-roll out all of the fondant.
There are so many gimmicks out there ... many of which are just a waste of money and time ... but I wanted to thank you for inventing this mat. Your product is nothing short of amazing. I'll be on the look out for the mat that is premarked with sizes. Oh and by the way ... thanks for your videos ... especially the one regarding covering a square cake. I've always had the puckering problem at the bottom of my cakes ... and usually ended up covering it up with a fondant border, etc ... but now I don't have that problem.
