I know you don't need me to tell you HOW GREAT "THE MAT" is!!! I just used it and I Love It probably as much as everyone else does!!! I had been thinking that someone should invent a way to help with the application of fondant. Didn't realize that your product was already out there. So glad I found it and YOUR Video is also perfect and correct! I had to try and see if I could hold up the mat with the fondant on it too!! It makes me think...."Why didn't I think of that"!! lol I started to shy away from covering my cakes with fondant but now "The Mat" has given me the confidence I needed! Love the way and how easily it worked! So happy :)
Thanks again and Happy Valentine's Day!
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.
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.
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.
