Just wondering if people had any recommendations on these two items. My husband got me the Fat Daddio's one, but I don't know much about it. Any help would be great.
Hi.. I have not used either one but I spent some time researching these and finally bought "the mat" by sweet wise... I love it and it keeps your fondant from drying out then your working.
I could hardly wait for The Mat to be available...I was drooling! The UPS gods would soon deliver the answer to my fondant prayers.
Yes, I 'primed' with shortening and wiped off most. Yes, I gave it a fair chance to 'season'. Yes to all the tips and tricks I learned on YouTube. The Mat performs...I just hate storing the damned thing(s)...it's like trying to re-fold a map. I can NEVER get the corners to meet or get it rolled right to put back in the frickin' tube
Long story short...I eventually purchased the large Ateco blue mat and cut up the 'other(s)' to use as coverings.
AI second the blue Ateco mat!!! I love it! I also have the Mat and never use it.
