I bought The Mat for my very first try with fondant and it was amazing.
The fondant was perfect on the 8-inch round cake, no bubbles, no ruffles, no ridges. The Mat is a must for anyone working with fondant, amateur or professional. Why complicate matters when there's such a simple, fool-proof tool! I am a self-taught lifelong hobbyist but I strive for professional-level results and I am glad I bought The Mat for my first time working with fondant.
This modelling tool has a small cutting wheel at either end, one 3/8"Dia and the other 5/8"Dia. The wheels are wonderful for cutting fondant, gumpaste, and marzipan to shape and are ideal for creating small detailed cut out shapes.
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.
Blade & Shell shaped modelling tool ideal for cutting and marking gumpaste, sugarpaste marzipan etc. The Shell end creates simple embossed shell patterns on cakes particularly around edges and borders.
