I ordered "the mat" a few months ago but never used it. I really don't like the taste of fondant so I've always talked people out of the fondant covered cakes. Plus I am good with butter cream and can get it to look as good as fondant(but it takes a while to do that).
A couple of weeks ago I helped a friend with a wedding cake and she was using your "Elite" fondant icing, I liked the taste of it better than the Wilton brand that I have used in the past. So this past weekend I had a customer that just had to have a fondant covered cake. I ordered your Elite fondant and your Satin Ice fondant and thought I might as well try out my mat.
The Mat may just be the best tool I have purchased in the last 20 years! It was very easy to use and very fast. Rolling out the fondant was so easy after watching your video.
My mat is the old one without the lines printed on it so I'm going to cut it up for to use on small projects and order a new one with the lines printed on it for the bigger cakes.
Thanks for a great store, web site and training videos!
I'll be delivering a cake to Nashville next month, so I'll be sure and stop in and load up while I'm in town.
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.
For flowers & leaves you roll the sugarpaste over the board and cut out your shape with your cutter. Peel the shape up thin out the edges and insert your wire to make flower or leaf petals. This board is also reversible so you have a larger surface to roll out your flat gumpaste items. A nonstick pad is included in the package to keep the board from moving while you are working.
