Just wondering if people had any recommendations on these two items.  My husband got me the Fat Daddio's one, but I don't know much about it.  Any help would be great.

Hi.. I have not used either one but I spent some time researching these and finally bought "the mat" by sweet wise... I love it and it keeps your fondant from drying out then your working.

I could hardly wait for The Mat to be available...I was drooling! The UPS gods would soon deliver the answer to my fondant prayers.


Yes, I 'primed' with shortening and wiped off most. Yes, I gave it a fair chance to 'season'. Yes to all the tips and tricks I learned on YouTube. The Mat performs...I just hate storing the damned thing(s)...it's like trying to re-fold a map. I can NEVER get the corners to meet or get it rolled right to put back in the frickin' tubeicon_cry.gif


Long story short...I eventually purchased the large Ateco blue mat and cut up the 'other(s)' to use as coverings.


The end.
