I'm new to sugarcraft and these mats appear frequently in tutorials and books as must-have items for creating sugar flowers. I can be a little heavy-handed sometimes and being able to shape and vein on foam rather than in the palm of my hand has saved me countless broken petals and dodgy-looking flowers!
My mat arrived in very good condition with instructions for use and for washing. Delivery, although not speedy, was within the target delivery range of dates and I think it represents good value.
A simple, soft foam pad. Ideal for intricate fondant work especially when using tools to shape as a soft background to push into gives a much better result. The little holes are probably very handy for holding various things but I haven't had need to use them yet.
i bought this item as i am making a wedding cake for a client,and i have been told it is a must have when making flowers,as i am.although i have already made a lot of roses,i bought it to see if there is a difference.it does.i would recommend this pad and the seller.thank you
