I have to say, I LOVE my mat. Don't know how I would live without it. Almost more useful is the video showing usage. Kathy makes everything she does look so easy. I have just tried the Swiss Buttercream. Fantastic. I would love to know where you can get the point and shoot thermometer with no probe. I may be going on my Christmas list!
This is a 1 piece cutter but you could cut some of the books apart for use. You can also cut out mulitiple pieces, remove some of the center ovals and place these over the first set for a relief effect.
