I am constantly referring people on the Wilton.com forum to videos on your site. (The ones referred most often are "Cake Construction" and "How to cover a cake with fondant using The Mat". ) New bakers have SO many questions and your videos hit the cake nail right on the head!
I began cake decorating at the age of 56 with the first of the Wilton classes at my local Michaels store. Like many others, it has turned into a passion. I have spent hundreds of hours online learning and videos like those from Sweetwise, Inc. are a blessing.

About THE MAT…. similar plastic or vinyl products are petroleum based and contain phthalates that are used as a plasticizer. Both are known to create health problems and concentrations of these can build in the body over time. Most if not all similar plastic products are made in China and use petroleum oil and contain phthalates and heavy metals like mercury and lead. If you unroll similar plastic products and smell the plastic, you’ll smell a strong chemical or petroleum order. If you smell THE MAT in comparison, you’ll notice a nice clean smell similar to plastic food wraps.
