Here's another (absolutely perfect and fabulous, of course!) sugarshack cake to illustrate what I mean...

How does everyone get those perfect fondant diamond shapes? I mean, obviously, it must exactly match up with the height of the cake -- if they're like cookie cutters, your cake would have to be exactly the same height each time -- if there's a way to do that - I sure don't know how!

I'm obviously missing something - can anyone fill me in?

or you could buy a set of square cutters and squash them into a diamond shape.

The diamond shapes are made using an impression matt. They are available at most cake stores and online.

For the one I did I used a diamond shaped cutter that came in a set of cookie cutters and molds that I got at TJ Maxx.
