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.
(p.s. I bought The Mat, but haven't used it yet--I'm looking forward to my next fondant cake!)
Create a baby bootie from gum paste to adorn a cake for a baby shower or baby's first birthday. After rolling the gum paste, use these cutters to form the individual components of the baby bootie and then assemble. Roll the gum paste with a patterned roller to create a textured finish, or colour the gum paste or dust the finished booties with dusting powders to make each bootie unique.
