I know, I know, Wilton sucks. icon_razz.gif But right now, I don't have the funding to get a real mold for leaves and veining so this $7 piece of plastic might have to do.

How does it work? Is it worth it to take it out of the package or should I save my money (or rather get it back) and vein by hand?

Any reviews?

If you are talking about the one that has two pieces that you fit together (sorta rectanglish) then I would really go get my money back. I got one as a gift - along with other caking items and I've had nothing but problems with it sticking. I've tried dusting cornstarch in it to help with that, but it still seems to stick and when I try to delicately pull them out with a toothpick - they either warp or tear. I'm in the same boat- I don't really want to shell out for better molds right this minute, but if I have a cake to do that requires a lot of leaves, I'll be scooting my tush to the cake store and get one.

Maybe others have had more luck than me???

I bought one of these too out of desparation.....yikes. Don't let yourself buy this contraption. It doesn't work and really is a waste of money.
