I have been doing cakes for 25 years and have always steered away from fondant, but I just had a bride insist on it and as I was searching youtube
I came across your video about the mat. I knew it would work because this is how I always made my pie crusts so I ordered the mat immediately. Needless to say it was a complete success. The cake was flawless! I am sending an attachment to share. Plus I used about 1/2 of the fondant that Wilton said was needed which saved me $$$ and made to overall texture of the cake more pleasant to eat!
These 9 1/2" x 5/32" lollipop sticks are the best lolly stick. They are nicely packaged and easy to work with. Just fill the mold cavity, insert the lolly stick and give it a little twist so it gets coated good for extra holding strength...
1/4" X 12" - Replaces old fashioned wood dowels. These dowels cut easily with scissors/shears. For extra support insert 2 small dowels into large dowel. Sanitary and easy to see when disassembling cake. Also, use for gumpaste flowers- drying tube and applique.
