  • Ice cake, cookie, cupcake (whatever you are decorating) with buttercream icing.
  • Roll out fondant to desired size and thickness on a silicone mat.
  • Lightly spray impression mat with cooking spray and lay mat over rolled icing.
  • Firmly roll over mat with pizza roller, ONE time and in ONE direction (never go back-and-forth).
  • Remove mat, cut design needed, and lay in place.

For buttercream icing:

  • Ice cake, cookie, cupcake (whatever you are decorating) with buttercream icing.
  • Allow to crust over (about 15 min)
  • Lay impression mat over crusted icing and gently roll over the mat with a pizza roller and then remove.

Impression mats are an easy way to add awesome designs to whatever you’re decorating. Be on the look out for some fun new impression mats from CK Products coming out in the next few months!
