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.

Genius product! I don't know how I managed without this before now. I love how the fondant doesn't stick to my surface now and I also love how thin I can get the fondant too & it's not covered in icing sugar anymore to stop it sticking. Highly recommend this.

I have never used fondant, this was my first time. The mat made it was supper easy-to-use the fondant. I covered my daughter's birthday cake in no time. The only party that took a long time was needing and roll out the fondant.

Such a great product!
Personally I would have paid DOUBLE for this mat! I came across the instructional video on YouTube about a year ago and just starting out with fondant, I cannot imagine working without it! Great product thank you!!

Best decorating tool since the KitchenAid!
I just purchased "The Mat" a couple of weeks ago, but am already impressed with how much easier it makes my work. I love The Mat. It makes covering a 16 inch tier as easy as covering an 8 inch. I love the fact that it is clear and makes placement on the cakes so much easier. Also, love the fact that your fondant does not dry out due to air exposure or using extra powdered sugar or cornstarch. Thank you for designing such a great product! I wish I would have had this years ago.

WOW! I don't know about you, but I don't just bake
Anything that you need to roll out, works with this. We love pizza but I always buy pre-made crust because I Cannot roll pizza dough. I just made 2 16" pizzas in less than 10 minutes with not one drop of flour on my counter. Pie crust? easy to put on the pan without tearing. I bought this for my fondant and cake decorating but I am using it for so much more. I have 1 for my kitchen everyday use and 1 for my fondant. So worth it.

Love the Mat, but....
I think I've had the original for about a year now, never had any problems with it rolling out smooth until now. I use it on a flat surface as always and when I put it away I wipe it only with a damp paper towel, dry and roll between baking paper, then place back into its original container. Now when I roll out my fondant the mat wrinkles to the point it leaves creases? I straighten it out and roll over it again but when first purchased and through many uses I never has to do this. Does it stretch out of shape eventually?
Sweet Wise Response - Hmmm, not sure exactly about the problem you're describing. We use our MATs in our classroom and each MAT goes though hundreds of uses. With later versions, we did increase the stiffness and thickness so what ever the cause, the newer versions will likely correct.

A friend told me about this Mat. I was about to fondant cover NINE tiers for a wedding cake. My Mats arrived 4 days before the wedding and saved the day. I was able to roll out all 9 tiers in no time at all, put them on the tiers with ease and had very little if any smoothing to do once the fondant was on.
