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.
With cut-outs it is easy to make fun 3-D shapes for your fondant cakes and cupcakes. Just roll out the fondant, press down with cut-outs and lift away! Remove shapes with a small spatula. Stainless steel shapes range from 5/8 in. to 2 1/2 in
1. Layered decorations! Stack cut-out fondant pieces in different sizes and colors. 2. Fondant fill-ins! Use a smaller cut-out to remove the center of your fondant decoration. Fill in with a different color! 3. Cake insets! Cut out shapes from your fondant-covered cake, then replace the pieces with your favorite colors.
