Ateco Translucent Mats, Design Sleeves, and Shakers

Ateco Translucent Mats, Design Sleeves, and Shakers

Hi, I’m Julie Bashore and I’m the founder of the Sugar Arts Institute and I’m here today to show you some more of the wonderful tools manufactured by Ateco. The first thing I’d like to show you is another silicone mat, this is a new mat that they’ve brought out into the market by the request of many of their customers. This is so that if the fondant is rolled out and adhered to the mat, when one goes to flip the fondant over the cake, the mat is translucent so you can be sure of centering your fondant over the cake. And when I say translucent, you can see here it truly is translucent so you can center the fondant over the cake quite well without having to worry about it being short on one side or too long on the other. It’s a great mat, holds well to the table. I’ve already rolled out a little bit of yellow fondant here using the plastic rolling pin. I started off by rolling very gently, working with my hands on the side of the pin and then coming in, just sliding the rolling pin, and what I’m effectively doing here is pushing the thickness of the center of the fondness out, so that I have the nice, even surface. I like my fondant to be thin, but because I’m going to be working with these wonderful design sleeves, I have actually rolled it out thick. For me, this is quite thick, for most of you, I’m sure you’ll think that this is quite thin, I like to keep my fondant thin so that it’s more palatable and easier to cut and eat. Normally I roll it out to 1/16 of an inch; here I have it at about 1/8 of an inch. I will thin it out using the design sleeve. For those of you who have piped basket weave on a cake, you know how time consuming that is. Piping every little horizontal and vertical line on the cake takes a long time. With this rolling pin it can be done all at once. This sleeve fits over the specially made Ateco rolling pin. It’s a lovely rolling pin, it’s nice and heavy so it’s easy to work with, and you just slip the design sleeve over the top. There are several different designs that they work with, this is another design, it is the cornily lace and gives a lace effect to the fondant. This also gives a fish scale effect. This fits nice and snuggly over the rolling pin and all sorts of things you can think of. I actually use this if I want to make little blankets on cakes, on christening cakes; this is a great design for a quilted look. Ateco has these wonderful stainless steel shakers. They’re easy to remove; you can put your cornstarch, your powdered sugar, your luster dust, even your glitter into this. It’s very simple to put on, it has a nice lid on the top of it so that you can preserve and keep your contents air tight and also, I travel a lot, so this is great, it prevents my product from spilling out. I’m going to shake a little cornstarch onto this and with your hand, just very gently, wipe off the excess. Don’t have too much on there because it will dry and crack the fondant. I prefer to start from close to me and roll upwards; some people prefer to do it the other way. So hold the rolling pin down and, very slowly and gently, roll over your fondant. You’ll see there is a beautiful basket weave design. I’m now going to be working with the cornily lace design sleeve, which also pops right over the rolling pin, and it’s the same procedure as working with the basket weave rolling pin. This is such an elegant design and I can say is one of the most favorite designs for wedding cakes. Now I’m going to be working with the fishnet design sleeve, it’s just like putting on a pair of socks. Stretch it open, pull it over the handle, and then push it onto the rolling pin. It has a nice, snug fit, so it doesn’t move. It’s really an extremely pretty design. It can be used for fish scales, mermaid tails, for blankets, for quilting, it really gives a lovely design and you can run away with your imagination as to what you can do with this. If you come in and have a look closely at this, you will see how this design opens up. Look at that attractive design; it could be used for so many aspects of cake decorating.

    This plastic rolling pin was recommended for use specifically with rolling out fondant. It should also work well for rolling out a variety of other doughs. Pay attention to size, to make sure you are getting what you are looking for.

    Con este tamano de rolling pin puedes estirar facilmente fondant para cubrir tortas desde peqenas hasta grandes sin marcas . Facil de lavar y no se pega nada fondant o gumpaste. Excellente producto!!

    from Kabac Posted on

    This rolling pin is typically used for fondant which is why I bought it however, the size and weight make it great for other uses as well. Because it's so wide I like to use it for pizza dough. It allows me to evenly roll the dough out 18" and still have room at the end of the pin to spare. Very happy with this purchase and highly recommend!

    Though I really like the feel of a good maple pin, I have to say I have been VERY impressed by this plastic variant. It is very sturdy and works just as well. Price is comparable to other plastic pins.

    from The Pie Kitchen Posted on

    I love this rolling pin. It is one of the most useful tools when working with fondant. And the price is the best. I've seen these at other Craft stores (Joann's and Micheals) and even walmart. Instead of getting it from those places, I saved myself the extra money to buy some more things here.

    Really great rolling pin, non-stick surface makes working with stickier doughs really easy, not too light or too heavy, also great for working with fondant and gum paste.

    from Pink Poppy Posted on

    I purchased this rolling pin for rolling out my fondant in cake decorating. It worked so well, I can't wait to use it for the next cake I have to make this week. It was a great purchase.
