Norman Davis: I am Norman Davis with The Sweet Life and what we are showing you today is simple decorating cake techniques in fondant, and right now we are going to be doing some impression mats. So an impression mat can be done on the side of your cake or on your cake board itself. So it all depends on what you are trying to achieve. So we are going to go ahead and take some of our satin ice fondant and our duster to keep it from sticking. We are going to knead it again, together, and kneading it, what its doing is, it's warming up by the heat of hand and also making it perfectly smooth. I am going to dust it, I am going to use my rolling pin, keep it moving. If you find that it's going to stick on you, just go ahead and dust it some more, you can always dust the top also. So it's a couple of different ways that you can use an impression mat. We can go ahead and take your impression mat and press it right on to the fondant, and use your rolling pin to get it into the cracks and crevices, or you can place your fondant on top of your cake board and do the same thing. So it all depends on what you are trying to achieve. The best way I find is to actually place your fondant on your board, because if you do it the other way, and once you have your design and you pick up your piece of fondant to place on your board, you are going to go ahead and distort some of the design that you just placed on it. So you can use your palm of your hands, you can use your rolling pin, so whatever you feel comfortable with. A lot of times I like to use the palm of hands because I can feel the pressure that I am giving, just going to pick that up. Let me pick this up and show you. See what a great design I have on there. So I am going to come back, finish the other half. A lot of the impression mats are large enough to go over your 12 inch project. This is just a smaller one, but I really like the design that comes out with it, and then you are just going to go ahead and use a knife, and once again clean up the ends, take your finger just to smooth out the ends to give it a nice finish. Now, at this point my board is ready for me to place my cake on. That just totally finished the end. It made the cake look totally complete instead of just having it on a regular board, and it just gave a lot more texture to the cake with the different textures and designs on this particular cake. Our next segment, we are going to use some silicon moulds.
