Floral Fantasy Fondant Imprint Mat

Thank you so much to everyone for participating. I realize there were some late entries, but I'm going to go ahead and include them since I really didn't do a great job of promoting this contest until the last few days. The entries trickled in slowly at first, and I feared it was going to be a total flop, but this giveaway ended up being my mot successful one yet! Okay, the winner is...

Comment number 33, which is deanna. Congratulations! Again, thanks to everyone who entered. Don't worry, I have more giveaways planned, so please check back. I wish everyone a safe and happy New Year!

Okay guys, here is another giveaway courtesy of free Wilton swag that I either have duplicates of or have no real use for. This one is the former, in that I bought both the Floral Fantasy and Leaves and Vines fondant mats when they first came out. Then later, when I attended an Wilton Instructor meeting, we were all provided with one or the other. I was handed a Floral Fantasy, which I stashed away when I got home, much like the poor, neglected Care Bear pan.

This mat has been comfortably resting on top of my kitchen cabinets ever since, and as my fondant mats that are already in use show no signs of needing to be replaced any time soon, I'm offering up this one.

  
Fondant imprint mats are an easy way to emboss a design over a large area. This one has a lovely floral pattern. Instructions on how to use it are printed on the back of the box, and some pictures on the front and sides display a few ideas.

Here is a close-up look at the texture. This is the pattern that is imprinted on the fondant.


So here's how to enter if you would like a chance at winning this Floral Fantasy Fondant Imprint Mat: Leave a comment below telling me your favorite flower. If you don't have a favorite flower, then make something up. I require constant amusement, you see. This entry is mandatory and must be done or else the other entries won't count. Yeah, I know. I'm nosy.

There are 7 ways to rack up bonus entries, but please be sure to leave a separate comment on this blog post for each entry so it counts.

For your amusement I'll say a Dandelion...which surely must really be a weed right?

Really, I would have to say Rose buds, preferably pink.
