I had the Home Mat in my cart but took it out. I thought it over again and, although hesitant, put it back in. I recently tried it out and now know with certainty this will be my "go-to" forever mat. I did not have to worry about the fondant sticking to the rolling pin, the dimensions became even more clear as I rolled, and, just as described, I was able to release the fondant from the mat and handle it with one hand. Being able to position the fondant where needed was a novice's dream.
I absolutely LOVE this product.
For flowers & leaves you roll the sugarpaste over the board and cut out your shape with your cutter. Peel the shape up thin out the edges and insert your wire to make flower or leaf petals. This board is also reversible so you have a larger surface to roll out your flat gumpaste items. A nonstick pad is included in the package to keep the board from moving while you are working.
Curved round shape is ideal for drying gum paste, fondant and royal icing flowers and leaves. Openings in bottom center make it easy to pull wires through and adjust for the perfect drying position. Includes 2.5 and 3 in. diameter cups for drying everything from simple blossoms and briar roses to large daisies.
These cutters are ideal for use with a range of edible and non-edible materials including sugarpaste (rolled fondant), petal paste (gum paste), marzipan or craft clays. Create beautiful simple to produce flowers complete with detailed veining.
