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 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.
Thick and thin squares are the ideal soft surface for shaping flowers, leaves and other fondant or gum paste cutouts. Use the thin square for thinning petal edges with a ball tool, carving vein lines on leaves and making ruffled fondant strips. Use the thick square for cupping flower centers.
