I have to say, I LOVE my mat. Don't know how I would live without it. Almost more useful is the video showing usage. Kathy makes everything she does look so easy. I have just tried the Swiss Buttercream. Fantastic. I would love to know where you can get the point and shoot thermometer with no probe. I may be going on my Christmas list!
Cake Dummy Solid, White styrofoam. To cover cake dummies, cover the dummy with piping gel, and then cover with fondant.
Due to softness of Styrofoam, there may be small dents or imperfections. These are easily covered or hidden with additional buttercream.
