Hi. I just wanted to let you know that I ordered (and received) the Home Mat. I have been decorating cakes for just under a year, as a hobby, for family and friends. I have used The Mat 3 times and have to say this is the best decorating tool that I have purchased. I really enjoy working with fondant and The Mat has taken all the guess work out of how much fondant to use and eliminated having to constantly measure the size that I've rolled out. I love The Mat and am so happy I ordered it. Greatest invention ever! Thank you so much.

This extraordinary success-story-told by the hero himself-of a young French pastry chef who climbed his way to the top, embodies the great American dream. After working at the Savoy in London, the George V in Paris, the Princess in Bermuda, and the Homestead in Virginia, Roland Mesnier took on the job of a lifetime as pastry chef to the White House. He provides behind-the-scenes insight into the characters, tastes, and obsessions of the five presidents and first ladies he served during his 25 years in Washington. Having witnessed major world events from the hub of the world's superpower, Mesnier has unique perspective on both crises and celebrations. He recounts stories such as Carter's incessant battle for the return of American hostages in Tehran, the aftermath of the attempt to assassinate Reagan, Bush senior's doubts after the war in Kuwait, and the shock of September 11. He uncovers intimate details such as Mrs. Reagan's bad moods and Prince Charles's embarrassment at not knowing how to use a tea bag. Fiercely loyal to each of the first families, Mesnier's bipartisan message is positive and inspirational. Twelve easy-to-follow recipes include the favorite desserts of presidents Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.
In his twenty-five years as Executive White House Pastry Chef, Roland Mesnier prided himself on creating a unique dessert for every special occasion, from elaborate State Dinners and formal receptions to smaller family gatherings and birthday celebrations.
Truly a masterpiece dessert reference guide! Roland Mesnier was the White House Pastry Chef for more than 25 years. Now, using this book, anyone can create and enjoy the deserts of kings and queens. Another one of Kathy Wise Gentry's (Sweet Wise Founder) favorites!
