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.
The icing bag stand hold six icing bags. The icing bag stand is made out metal so it is durable and easy to clean. It has a foam at the bottom of the stand, which is intended to stay damp with water during use to keep the icing in the tips from drying out.
