Does anyone know how to get the quilted look on BC? I don't have a fondant press or anything. Thanks!
You'll need a crusting BC and a template. Cut a length of card stock into the width you want the diamonds at the widest point. For expample, if you want the width to be 1", cut a strip 1" wide by 5" high (a little taller than the height of the cake). Snip off the bottom corner to get the angle you want the lines to be (then you can place the template flat on your cake board and get the same angle each time).
Use this template and a ruler or sewing tracing wheel and impress the diagonal lines in one direction all around the cake, then flip the template over and go in the other direction. You may need to dip the edge of your ruler or tracing wheel in powdered sugar.
or create a template by using a hot glue gun and cardboard...just make the pattern you want on the piece of cardboard (10x14 cake boards or half that size work really well) then when it's dry, you can press it into the crusted buttercream.
Thanks! I think I might try the first method. I don't have any hot glue right now.
I love the creativity of some. You can always order one. Thanks for the suggestions on how to make one.
