hi just wanted to know if these mats can be taken out of the roll in which they are packed and folded and stored in siutcase to transport it to another country

Sweet Wise Response - You should NEVER fold THE MAT - you will ruin it. The fold creases will show up in your fondant. While slight wrinkles in the material from improper storage will "relax" out, sharp creases from folding are permanent.

If you're traveling on a plane, just carry THE MAT onboard in the cabin.

we tried to use the mat last nite. no matter what, the fondant stuck to the mat, ripping and falling apart...any tips? I make homemade fondant, how can I tell if my fondant is too soft for the Mat?

Sweet Wise Response - Just increase your dry ingredients until the fondant no longer sticks to THE MAT. Keep track of how you much you change your recipe so you'll know next time. Also, test a small piece of your fondant (about the size of your hand) until you have the right consistency. Once you have the right consistency with you particular fondant, you'll have no trouble and your fondant work will be a breeze. :)

I was wondering can you use any kind of rolling pin to roll fondant.

Sweet Wise Response - Yes, you can use any rolling pin but it is best if you use a pin that doesn't stick to fondant like the Silpin. If you're using any of THE MAT products, it doesn't matter what pin you use because the rolling pin doesn't touch the fondant.

Last night I tried my Pro Mat for the first time and failed fondant (Fondarific) kept sticking to the bottom mat and wouldn't release for anything. I washed, dried, tried and washed, dried, and tried again. Any tips??

If you email customer service, we have a great solution for this that is easy to fix. Just email

soooo which one should i order if im working from home

Sweet Wise Response - Depends on the size of cakes you'll be making. THE Home MAT covers up to a 12" cake. If you're planning on doing larger tiers, you'll need THE Pro MAT

I have the Pro Mat and am having trouble using it. I'm using Satin Ice fondant trying to cover a dummy and it is breaking right at the end. I watched the video again and I'm pulling the mat taunt like you suggested. It goes on perfect at first until I get to the side closest to me, then it tears. Help!

Sweet Wise Response - This section is for product reviews. Questions like this are more quickly answered by emailing About your fondant tearing... remember... don't pull THE MAT away from the fondant, let the weight of the fondant pull itself from THE MAT. Most likely you're pulling too fast. Also, your fondant might be thinner in spots. After you've rolled out your fondant, hold up THE MAT to a light with both top and bottom sheets still encasing your fondant. Any thin spots will be obvious in the light.

Hello, what is the best fondant to use?

Sweet Wise Response - All fondants work great with THE MAT. At Sweet Wise, we like Satin Ice and Fondx fondants.

I took a cake decorating class 3 years ago and the clear mat is what they told us to use. Seeing your video I like the idea of covering the top too. This is the easiest way to make your fondant looks like a pro. Thanks for the great idea.

Sweet Wise Response - And remember... THE MAT is THE ONLY Food Safe material like this available. :)
