Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
For quick clean up, use a silicone mat to line your baking sheet while decorating. The mats' non-stick surface will make cleaning up a breeze.
Make cooking a lot easier and more enjoyable by using good quality silicone baking mats. Not only are silicone mats sturdy and durable. Because they're non-stick, you can also cut your clean-up time in half.
