I just had to write to tell you about my experience with The Mat. I used it for the first time yesterday and it was a large 14" round cake. I have to tell you, it was absolutely wonderful. I followed the instructions in your video and it really works exactly as advertised. I make many fondant cakes and I love making the flowers and decorating them, but I always dreaded covering the cake with the fondant. But not anymore. I think your product is fantastic and I wish I knew about it a long time ago. It would have definitely saved me a lot of grief. So congratulations on a wonderful product AND extra kudos for having it made in the USA. I am so pleased.
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.
