Excellent creation for quick fondant icing but pricey for what it is. . This is a amazing notion despite the fact that really costly for what it is. It is just two huge squares of crystal clear plastic. You practically put some trex on your fingers and rub it all in excess of the mat on the sides which go with each other and then wipe it off with a piece of kitchen towel. You then place your fondant concerning the two items and roll it out as normal but without the have to have for icing sugar or cornflour which means your fondant stays nice and cleanse and doesn’t dry out. If you use marzipan spacers it is a little bit tricky as you have to retain turning the mat around which signifies you have to hold transferring the spacers as well which is a bit aggravating. When rolled you simply just peel off the top rated element and then drape the fondant attached to the base portion of the mat in excess of your cake, tease the initially edge of a little bit and then lift the mat a bit and the fondant simply little by little slides off the mat. The only criticism i have is that you have to set the two shiny surfaces collectively and it is genuinely difficult to notify which side is the shiny facet. I saved swapping them about but the moment i obtained it suitable, i simply just roll the mat again up with the two sides touching eachother so that i will not have to maintain phaffing all around with it. In general it does make lifting the icing on to the cake quite quick but it is an terrible great deal of funds for two bits of distinct plastic but expressing that i you should not think i would like to be without the need of it now.

I’ve completed combating fondant. I’ve been undertaking embellished cakes for about 20 years, and lengthy back gave up the struggle royal and merely fought with fondant. Sometimes i received, occasionally it received the better of me. Believed i’d give this a try out immediately after following the backlink to the brands internet site [. It undoubtedly performs as they explain and i coated a ten-inch square cake with simplicity, and it looked as superior as any i’d at any time done. Hope i will make improvements to with apply working with the mat, they do say in the companion movie on its treatment and servicing, which i recommend looking at prior to you consider making use of it, that mats want breaking in and you will get greater effects soon after a couple of goes. My only quibble is that the mat is instead huge (beneficial for substantial cakes) and unwieldy for modest cakes, in point i most likely won’t bother employing it for cakes fewer than 7 inches across. But it really is terrific for massive types.

  • the original mat – NO MEASUREMENT MARKINGS covers upto 20″ cakes professional finish every time PLEASE NOTE THIS IS THE ORGINAL MAT WITH NO MARKINGS ON IT YOU NEED THE NEW HOME OR PRO MAT IF YOU REQUIRE MARKINGS

This mat is very potentially the greatest obtain i have ever manufactured for my cake decorating business. It helps make rolling sugarpaste a lot a lot easier and as you can roll it thinner the cakes flavor a great deal far better for it. 1 downside is the deficiency of instruction on precisely how to use it, nevertheless, if you are like me you will have completed your homework and located out all about the solution ahead of making your order. The mat necessitates conditioning with vegetable shortening prior to very first use but this is not prepared everywhere, the information and facts is only offered in the promo online video. Cakes have a qualified finish even for a rookie. I simply cannot recommend this merchandise hugely enough.

Have to have products for cake decoration. I are not able to do without having it, purchased it ages back and it is really always supplying me a best complete to my cake decoration. Fondant just the suitable thickness to cover cake and not crack. Minimal icing use, constantly guarantee cos i do not like sugar that a lot and i nevertheless get exceptional finish and attractive on the lookout cake decoration.

Brief supply and i adore it , simple also use directions quite very clear as a novice i considered it may possibly be a battle but no it’s created items so substantially easier would highly propose.

The MAT by Sweetwise : Amazing buy it and just watch the video on youtube and away you go. I used it to roll my fondant out then the magic beings just pick it up and cover so easy and so quick love it.

  1. Great invention for easy fondant icing but pricey for what it is. . This is a brilliant idea although very expensive for what it is. It is just two big squares of clear plastic. You literally put some trex on your fingers and rub it all over the mat on the sides which go together and then wipe it off with a piece of kitchen towel. You then put your fondant between the two pieces and roll it out as usual but without the need for icing sugar or cornflour which means your fondant stays nice and clean and doesn’t dry out. If you use marzipan spacers it is a bit tricky as you have to keep turning the mat around which means you have to keep moving the spacers as well which is a bit annoying. When rolled you simply peel off the top part and then drape the fondant attached to the bottom part of the mat over your cake, tease the first edge of slightly and then lift the mat slightly and the fondant simply slowly slides off the mat. The only criticism i have is that you have to put the two shiny surfaces together and it is really difficult to tell which side is the shiny side. I kept swapping them about but once i got it right, i simply roll the mat back up with the two sides touching eachother so that i don’t have to keep phaffing around with it. Overall it does make lifting the icing onto the cake very easy but it is an awful lot of money for two bits of clear plastic but saying that i don’t think i would like to be without it now.

      1. Just epic – if you’re a cake decorator you need this in your life. After watching the video on how to use it, i decided it would be an excellent addition to my ever growing collection of cake decoration tools, plus i had a 4 tier wedding cake to make and wanted the end product to look as professional as possible. I can honestly say this product is even better than i thought it would be – my fondant is now super smooth and silky with no sticking at all, plus it’s so so so easy to transfer and position fondant on my cakes now. Clean up is fairly easy (although i bought the large size so have to wash it in the bath) and it stores neatly away in the tube it came in. I genuinely don’t know how i lived without it before. Is this my new favourite product?. I’m off to buy the smaller version now.

    And it has gone brilliantly. No cracking or overstretching at all. I bought this, not from amazon but thought a review would be helpful. I have been covering cakes with fondant for over 25 years, a hit and miss procedure, with some going perfectly and others less so. Cracking could be a problem due to rolling out on icing sugar or corn flour, or drying out during rolling. I have used the mat on my last 3 cakes, one very large, one tall and thin, and one ball shape. . And it has gone brilliantly. No cracking or overstretching at all. The fondant is covered so you can have a rest half way through if you want.Minimal instructions though, so you should watch the you tube video before starting.

    Works brilliantly and doesn’t stick at all. Must have product for anyone trying to roll out dough or icing sugar. Works brilliantly and doesn’t stick at all. Only criticism is that it’s a mess to have to clean as it’s too big to fit in the sink. Have tried to hang it out on the washing line and washing it there but it seems to leave water marks. This doesn’t stop the product from working though so still very pleased with it.

    1. There are no amount of words to describe how much i love this item, lots of my cake friends disagree with me but for me this has changed the way i cover cakes.

  10. Does exactly what it says it does. Brilliant invention – makes it easy to roll your fondant reasonably thinly and get it to the cake in one piece. One thing i’d suggest though is if you only intend covering smaller cakes, don’t buy the huge one as it can be quite unwieldy trying to get it over a 6″ cake on a relatively small kitchen surface. That said, you can cut it down with scissors to suit your needs if you’re sure you’ll never need to cover anything gargantuan.

    I bought the original sweetwise mat when they first came to the uk found it quick n easy. This new mat is even better you can now tell which side you have had the fondant rolled out on also the quality is much better with being thicker. Easiest way to roll out fondant even a beginner.

    1. No more dry icing as no more dusting to roll out. I do now need to invest in a heavier rolling pin though.

    1. I do a lot of baking and work with sugar paste and i’m so please that i have no need to roll the paste on a rolling pin any more as it stays on the mat and i can just position it over that cake and peel it from the mat it’s great, i would recommend it to anyone that does a lot of baking it great for rolling out your pastry to it works the same way as for sugar paste.

    I’d seen the you tube demo and knew the theory but this simple mat made the process of rolling and more importantly moving fondant stupidly easy.
