Ok so.. I was wondering if you all think a diamond impression mat is better than a diamond cutter? and vice versa. I was also wondering about the pro's and con's of each.
Thanks for your vote and thoughts!!
I think it depends on what covers your cake - either fondant or BC. I tried it on crusted BC and it peeled a bit off and some of the BC stuck to the mat. I think you would have an easier time w/fondant. I like the mat better only because it will perfectly space your diamond print.
Thank you !! That is great to know!!
I've used the diamond mat on bc, you have to dust it with corn starch first and the bc has to be crusted.
I think the cutter-type gives you more of a quilted look than the impression mats do. I only like to use either on fondant. Since I use SMBC and it doesn't crust there's no using the mat.. and the cutter isn't even a great option.. but on fondant it's no issue.
Thanks again everyone! Especially Tyty for letting me know about the corn starch!
