I just had to write to tell you about my experience with The Mat. I used it for the first time yesterday and it was a large 14" round cake. I have to tell you, it was absolutely wonderful. I followed the instructions in your video and it really works exactly as advertised. I make many fondant cakes and I love making the flowers and decorating them, but I always dreaded covering the cake with the fondant. But not anymore. I think your product is fantastic and I wish I knew about it a long time ago. It would have definitely saved me a lot of grief. So congratulations on a wonderful product AND extra kudos for having it made in the USA. I am so pleased.
The two ended tool is extremely useful in shaping flowers and adding texture to them. The larger end has a wide curved edge to add a curl to the edge or round a petal. The second side is thinner and comes to a point and is great for adding lines and texture to petals.
Thick and thin squares are the ideal soft surface for shaping flowers, leaves and other fondant or gum paste cutouts. Use the thin square for thinning petal edges with a ball tool, carving vein lines on leaves and making ruffled fondant strips. Use the thick square for cupping flower centers.
