It got delivered through UPS.  Is it ruined if it gets hot?   The shortening I buy at the store is solid compared to this.  I think it's CK brand.  
I just opened up my first container of hi ratio shortening, and it's not at all what I expected.  It's a creamy consistency, and I'm used to the more solid generic shortening I buy at the store.  Is this normal????    Do you have to add more sugar with HRS?
I rarely do wedding cakes because they stress me out so much.   I agreed to do one for my mother's best friend's daughter and got a call today, (3 days before wedding) saying they don't need the cake.  I guess they've had an argument and cancelled the whole thing.  This was a three tiered cake to feed 150. I'm going to give her the money back because she's a close friend of the family, but it made me realize I need to come up with some kind of policy on this. Anybody...
I got an email back from the Dahle representative. She says the self healing mat can't be considered food safe because it's made from PVC.  I wonder if the company selling it knows that??    "Since the mats are made from recycled PVC, we cannot okay for food.   Thank you"   Janice Fiandaca Sales Support Representative Dahle North America, Inc.  d: 603.925.3012 tf: 800.995.1379 x: 3012 f: 603.925.3013 w: www.dahle.com
I can't find any information about it being food safe.    What is your mat made of?
Is this what you're describing?   http://www.globalsugarart.com/fmm-**********-knife-scriber-tool-p-17240.html
Interesting!  
I've been using the plastic (?) Wilton mat for rolling fondant, but I keep cutting into it with my xacto knife.  I feel like I'm buying a new one every couple of months.  What do you guys use for those things?  Is there a mat I can't cut into with a xacto knife?? 
  Yes, I do.  I'll check for smaller ones next time I get stuff there.  Thanks Leah!     I tried with the pan and beans this weekend.  Even left a 1/2" space on the edge when I filled the center with buttercream.  Still had a slight buldge.  I guess I will have to make my buttercream thicker, especially in this hot weather.    You have solved the air bubble problem for me, though!  Eternal gratitude!! (found that in another thread)
  I think carving is totally different from shoving a doll into it though. You're not really exerting as much pressure.   I've done tons of Barbie cakes, and it's never happened until I trimmed the outer edge.
