Hi,   Where do you order it? Did you get it from this website?   Also, when you say the newer improved mat, do you mean the Pro Mat? Thank you so much for your help. Kosha
Hello, I'm in a desperate need to find a good fondant mat. I've been using the Wilton Fondant mat and I hate it for several reasons. I would appreciate your recommendations. Thank you. Kosha

Hello,   I'm looking for a buttercream recipe that is not too sweet. The one that I use is 1 cup Shortening, 1 cup butter, vanilla and 2 lbs. of sugar.

Air tight container, etc.?    Do you have any tutorials you could refer me to for...
There's so many different versions of Michele Fosters Chocolate fondant recipe. Is there one version that you rely on and use? If yes, can you please send me the direct link to that recipe?  Thank you.
