We've finally bought a house (yey!) and finally convinced my husband to convert one of the rooms as my workshop (double yey!). I want a counter top that I can use for rolling fondants, etc. i've done a trial day on cake shop and they have this cream/ off-white coloured counter tops, sort of have a matt texture...any idea what this is? This use it when rolling fondants, making models etc. If not, any suggestions on what kind of counter top surface I should get?
Before I owned a bakery, I used my home's granite countertops. When I built the bakery, I invested in steel tables. Both are equally good for rolling the fondant. If you don't want to do everything in granite, look for a table that can have a granite remnant added. Make sure it is as tall as a counter. Or you can just add a slab to part of your cabinets. I think the important issue is to have it without texture, because what you use to keep it from sticking is the really important issue.
