I am doing a wedding cake in November in BC and the bride wants scrolls - the kind that are scattered like swirls, not the kind in a line around and edge, etc. I need to find an impression mat or some time of tool like that so I can trace it - there is no way I can do that freehand! icon_biggrin.gif I have checked several websites I know of and have done a search for one, but haven't found what I'm looking for - any ideas?

BTW - there are so many new names!!! I haven't been in the forums in a couple of months because of moving and there are so many new people!! icon_smile.gif

Thanks! I thought I had gone to that site, but when I clicked on the link I saw a scroll mat that looks similar to, though not exactly like the pattern I was looking for. The bride wants a cake copied, but I think she will be flexible enough that I could go with this other pattern!

This is the pic of the cake she wants from - if anyone has seen a mat that looks like this let me know - I'd like to have a few options to choose from! thumbs_up.gif Thanks!

I have seen pattern presses, but not impression mats, like that.

If I come across some, I will post here, though.

Good luck!

Those impression mats are great! I think that one fits more closely to the design of what the bride wants!! I did see the Wilton pattern presses, but I'm so afraid of messing it up, especially since I've never done this before! I'll be glad to get a nice mat to give me guidance!! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh, I definitely agree. I think the mat is much better than the pattern press. I just hadn't seen one before now. icon_smile.gif

Go to eBay and look for the seller named sweetexpress or the eBay store name of Sweet Expressions Silicone Molds.

Also, you can try this url..

Hope this helps,

What do you use for icing to do that type of scroll work? Do you use thinned Buttercream or something else?????
It sure is pretty.

Just regular BC is fine. I don't have that particular mat but had wanted to get it. Someone please let me know how it works.
