I am making a baby block cake next week looks like the Baby Einstein fabric blocks -- saw one someone else did, and I see the stitching marks I keep reading people use a stitching wheel to get.

What is this, and where do I find one?

Thanks for your help!!

You can get one on GSA or intotheoven.com.. but you can also go to the sewing section in wal mart or Hobby Lobby and find a stitching wheel icon_smile.gif (just keep it used for cakes) icon_smile.gif

If it's the one I think it is, you can find it with the sewing stuff in Wal-mart etc, but it isn't called a stitching wheel. It's the one you use when marking fabric with carbon paper. It looks like a little boot spur at the end of a stick/handle. I never thought about using mine for anything other than sewing. HTH

I got mine at Wal Mart. It's a dressmaker's pattern wheel.

Great! Thanks. I'll stop on my way home! Can't wait to try it out.

I saw also where people use them to put the stitching along the edge of ribbon (and bows) to make them look more real.

Wilton makes a set with a straight cutting wheel and a couple of patterned wheels. There is storage in the handle of the unit for the two wheels not in use, while the third wheel is placed on the handle for use.

I too use a pattern wheel (stitching wheel) it is used to mark where darts go on dresses with the carbon paper.

It works wonders , metal and makes perfect stitch marks, also got another one with out the stars tips that is a smaller version of a pizza wheel and cuts small items so much better than the wilton fondant wheel.

Also got an herb cutter in the kitchen department which has 8 of these wheels and makes perfect linguine size strips for use in decorations. I dont have to measure anything.

I am always on the look out for different things to use that are not "fondant " tools to use in cake decorating. I love wandering thru home depo and lowes as well as kitchen gadget stores for things that can be used.
