I just made my first wedding cake, I work out of my house and I recently purchased the mat from you guys because the demonstration on YouTube was great! I thought....I have to try this thing. I think covering the cake with fondant is always the hardest thing when making a cake. It's hard to keep your table sanitary (and I have a dog... With lots of hair) and its hard to roll it out evenly and quickly without it drying out and getting 10x sugar everywhere. Let me tell you, the mat is amazing! It saved me time and was so easy to use with professional results! I followed your demonstration and it worked exactly like you said! It was some of the best money I ever spent and I just want to thank you for making my cake decorating a lot easier! I absolutely love it! :)
If you want to cut your decorating time, Wilton multi-opening tips are a great solution. Each tip creates several uniform decorations simultaneously so you can cover an area of your cake much faster than with a single opening tip.
The Wilton Tip Saver is the quick and easy tool you need to restore any size tip to its original shape. Simply place the tip over its pointed or cone shape end, put on the cover and twist back and forth.
Instructions To straighten tops of standard tips, slide tip into narrow end of barrel-shaped section. Fit knob end of cone shaped section into tip as shown and twist back and forth, using light pressure, until top of tip is straightened. Loosen with your finger or a pencil to remove. For large tips, place tip into wide end of barrel-shaped section, and follow instructions above. To straighten openings of tips 1 to 12 or to open star tips, push pointed end of cone shaped section into bottom of tip and through opening. Turn gently back and forth until tip regains original shape.
Star techniques and drop flowers; the finely cut teeth of 199 thru 364 create decorations with many ridges; use 6B and 8B with pastry dough too. All tips work with standard bags and couplers, unless otherwise indicated.
