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.

Place the tip on a 90 degree angle on the surface of the cake or cupcake.
Squeeze the bag until you build a nice base.
Then pull the bag straight up releasing the pressure at the same time.
