AI am going to attempt my first fondant covered cake. If it does not work out I can do buttercream. Here is my problem. I have a island counter top that is 21 yrs. old. It is tile with front in between. When I roll it on the "The Mat" it leaves marks from the tile squares. My dining room table is pretty smooth but it has two fine line from the leafs. Any ideas what to use under my mat that would be big enough to prevent the lines?

AMaybe have a piece of wood cut big enough to put the mat on??

I was going to say the same as georgiacakelady, you may need to put a piece of non slip mat under the wood to stop it moving while rolling your fondant.

I roll fondant out on my drop leaf table with a vinyl tablecloth (the kind you purchase from a roll at a .99 store).  I get no creases or lines.  Maybe you can use your mat in conjunction with that since the tablecloth may not be deemed food safe.
