I got your mat and I am in love with it. I also watched your YouTube video on making swags and drapes from fondant ( I am just starting to work with fondant). Today I made my first ever fondant drape on a wedding cake using your tips and technique ( the frosting was buttercream )....If I could hug you I would!! It worked out perfectly. It worked and looked just like you said it would. Want to send you a picture, but I guess you can only post videos in emails on YouTube...Anyways Thank you Thank you!!!
When you get your online classes up and running, I am so in!!

The detail in this mold is extraordinary! This mold is so flexible, your flowers will come out with every petal in shape. The mold is so realistic, and best of all, nothing sticks to it!! This mold is very soft and flexible and can easily go from as high as 450 degrees to the freezer without affecting the mold! Kathy's Tip: Be sure to make your gumpaste ahead of time (by adding Tylose Powder to your Fondant), wrap it up and let it sit for 20-30 minutes so it can firm up slightly. Then place it into the mold, and it will come out much more easily, without stretching. Letting it sit in the larger molds like this one a little longer, perhaps 20 minutes up to an hour, will allow you to get every folded petal, nook and cranny, without flaws or stretching. A GREAT bonus about this mold is that you can get SMALLER ROSES by simply filling only the center!
