What's the best thing to use for cutting shapes from fondant using an exacto knife? - Page 2

At Joann Fabrics, I found these almost clear mats meant to use for quilting, but work great for fondant! They don't have any lines, rulers, etc. on them, they're totally smooth, and they've been holding up well. They're kind of a "cloudy" clear color, if that makes sense, and are really inexpensive. I've been hand washing them - haven't tried the dishwasher.

I actually bought a marble pastry board that I love. I mostly got it for when I roll dough out but I also figured it would be a great tool for rolling out fondant.

Thank you so much for the reply. =)

I wasn't aware that self-healing cutting mats (or floor tiles) were food-safe.

(And hey, how come, on a food-oriented board, we don't have any emoticons for "nauseous" or "definitely not Good Eats"?)

Oh the drama. Yeah, it wouldn't be good eats to bite a chunk of rubber. Wash it, sanitize it, replace it once you have cut into badly, or it's just "time". Rolling out little decorations on a clean and sanitized surface is perfectly fine in most reasonable adults minds.
