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.

    1 out of 1 found this review helpful

    A great mat for rolling out pizza and pasta dough. it's nice and thick and doesn't slide around the counter when using it. It's very large and works for every job I've needed it for.

    This is a great product. It is large. Makes it easier to work with fondant. You should try lightly misting the counter with water before place the mat to make the mat stick to the counter.

    A nice mat perfect size for rolling out fondant for large cakes. it's easy to clean and rolls up nicely for storage. Not too thick so it's easy to work with.

    from TRW Posted on

    This silicone mat was recommended especially for use with rolling out fondants. I have used it with other doughs and it works great. This was a wonderful addition to the kitchen. Highly recommended.

    I find this mat more useful for cutting out fondant pieces than actually rolling out fondant for an entire cake. To me, it was just a bit to thick to flip over onto the cake. It does make a great work mat for fondant and gum paste.

    One of the best mats I've tried! It's so strong, thick and steady you will appreciate it on the first use, easy to clean i love it!!!

    from Rosys Cakes LLC Posted on

    This silicone mat is a sanity saver. If you are new to fondant save yourself the time and get this! Don't wait like I did and panic because the fondant keeps falling and cracking. It is a great investment and the price is amazing.

    from Anna Mea's Bakery Posted on

    We use this mat every time we do a cake. Not only to roll out our fondant and gum paste but also to cover our surface. It's super easy to move the mat to the sink to wash.

    from kedbys kreations & party rental Posted on

    awesome silicone mats. i bought one myself to use when i am working with fondant, kneading dough and others. great way to keep the area clean from the mess.

    So much nicer than the pictures show. It's a nice thick silicone with measuring markings along the side. Nice and non stick great for fondant and gumpaste work.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    This Silicone Matt is very functional. I roll my fondant on it and it doesn't stick. I cut out my cake decorations. I also use it to roll a big batch of cookie dough. I always roll the mat out. Never fold it.

    from martha's creations Posted on

    I use this mat for making doughs, in particular. It is great for whatever kind of dough you're making plus it comes at a great price!

    from The Pie Kitchen Posted on

    These are awesome for working out different kinds of doughs! They work great for making pie crusts. The dough doesn't stick to it at all!

    I have three of these in my restaurant and I wish I had more. They work great and are very easy to clean up. I use them for all my rolling. great product at a great price.

    from The new haven cafe Posted on

    We have several of these mats in our shop. We use them for rolling out fondant. It's very easy to clean with a damp cloth. Be careful not to cut fondant on them though because they get damaged very easily.

    from Sweet Spot Posted on

    This mat is huge. I was looking for regular size mat since I use them for candy making. I only found this on webstaurantstore, but it is great. I cut it in 8 pieces, it works perfect and at the end I pay a lot less for my silicone mats.

    from SWEET CORNER Posted on

    It looks like Ateco updated their silicone mat. I've gone through several of them (I ended up cutting them up with my x-acto) but I cannot work without this item. I love the new updated heavy duty quality. This is a must have for anyone that works with gumpaste and fondant. Webstaurant also has the best price online!

    from Sweet Spot Posted on

    This mat is the perfect size for large amounts of fondant. I couldn't find a smooth silicone mat that was large enough to roll out fondant for a 12 - 14 inch cake until I ran across the Ateco 697. Now I just roll it out, flip the mat over the cake then peel it off. Trim, smooth and decorate. Easy as pie (cake) :^)

    This mat works great for rolling fondant! :-) Fondant does not stick to the mat. Great for rolling fondant to cover large cakes. It's also easy to clean.

    from Carmela's Confections Posted on

    Love this for rolling out fondant. Easy to clean, easy to store. I now own 2. This is a must buy for any Cake Decorator!

    from FH Cakes Posted on

    The silicone mat is excellent for fondant and any task in cake decorating. It is a premium product. Also your service at Webstaurantstore deserves five stars.

    from IMAGINE Posted on

    A very invaluable tool to make cleanup a snap. I've used the mat a few times already and it made the cleanup a breeze. One concern I had was the products sticking to it - which seems to be OK.

    Posted on

    I purchased this mat to roll out my fondant for a very large cake. It worked wonderfully. I will use this for all my fondant work from now on. I definately recommend this product. Thank you WebstaurantStore!
