For those people who think this is expensive don't know what they are talking about
Today March 16th 2013 was the first time I used my mat after having it still in the box after about two months of ordering it. This product is the best tool I ever brought for my part time business. Words can't even explain that THE MAT saved me time and fondant and stress. The first time I used it my fondant cake came out perfect. Oh my GOD! it was beautiful! I have been decorating cakes since 1979 and I have just started to use fondant in the recent year and before I used The Mat I dreaded customers that wanted fondant. The only thing that kept those cakes looking beautiful and flawless was that I knew how to decorate to hide the elephant skin or rips. What! after using this today I can't imagine not using this for every single fondant cake from today on. As a matter of fact I am going to order two more the small and larger one. I just don't want anything to happen to them. Oh my GOD THE Mat is unbelievable and the best investment anybody can make. The size guide on THE Mat makes rolling fondant a breeze it was a one time roll and application after viewing the video. I had the video going while I was doing my cake as if the instructor was there with me. Who needs to go to culinary school when you can learn like this. The video made it easy and fun, again don't try buying some kind of plastic on a fabric store when this product does the job, don't be cheap and try it love it use it save with it make money with it, like I said words can't express this amazing product! THE MAT HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love it!
I have just used my mat for the first time and I love it. Not only did I cover 2 cakes and my board with ease but I used much less fondant and far less mess to tidy up. It was so easy to use and no stress or panic over tearing fondant. No drying out and cracked finish.
I couldn't be happier with this.

Excellent Tool but I have one question
I got this mat as I have so many issues with fondant. I always get elephant skin and tears. I had a bit of a play with it today as I have a wedding cake to do this weekend. This mat is awesome, rolling it out is so easy. I practiced releasing the fondant and letting it come off the mat, it is super easy. Not sure what im doing with the rolling out but I am getting a very thin middle and thicker ends. Im rolling from the centre out. Could you please tell me if im rolling too hard or what im doing wrong. Thank you. Apart from that I cant wait to make many cakes with the mat.
Sweet Wise Response - Kathy shows in the video that you can hold your rolled fondant still between the two sheets of THE MAT up to a light and see if you have any thin spots. If you do, just roll/push the fondant toward the thin spots or knead and add a little extra fondant to any thin spots.

Best product EVER for cake designers!
I can't say enough about how happy I have been with The Mat! I have been using the original Mat for 2 1/2 years and just can't imagine ever going back to the powdered sugar and rolling pin method.

The Pro mat was bought for me as a present, it is amazing! Really really good thick plastic, it is amazingly easy to use and gives fantastic results! Brilliant idea, every cake decorator needs one of these! Simply genious!

I bought The Mat (original without the markings) last year (2011) to help me to complete my son's 3-tier wedding cake - 1x8ins, 1x10ins and 1x12ins. I can honestly say that without the mat I would not have had the successful result that I did have. Brilliant product. Thank you to the 'brains' who thought of it.
The new one looks very good with lots of help printed on it. Might have to buy that one next. Do you deliver to France?

I just used my mat and can't stop talking about it. I love everything about it most of all I love that I don't have to use cornstarch it powdered sugar to prevent sticking. This leaves a fantastic finish on my fondant and doesn't dry it out

Cleaning and storing
I loved working with thus product easy and quick with little mess. I would like to know how to keep it clean and how to store it after use. Don't want any mould growing on it.
Sweet Wise Response - The easiest way is to simply wipe down w/ a disinfecting wipe.
