Ok...so I keep seeing all these amazing cakes with little lines on them. For instance, there will be a diagonal line that starts at the top left and ends at the bottom right. Then another diagonal line starts at the top right and ends at the bottom left, making a diamond. They are all so precise, I wondered if there is a trick to how it's done. I guess I could measure it out. And it really looks like it's just done with the side of a big cake spatula.

Any thoughts for those of you who have done this??

Thanks!!

You can buy an impression mat, but I use a right triangle and a small pastry wheel to make my diamond pattern so I can make them any size I like without having to have a ton of mats.

That's perfect PinkZiab! I will try your method and see if I can do it. If not, I'll go find a mat!! Thanks for your help! You always give great advice!
