Ok, so what is the easiest most efficient way to get the quilted look on a tier of cake?? I thought about an impression mat, but wouldnt that be difficult to work with and keep straight??

The middle tier is the look that I am trying to achieve, any tips?

Why don't yhou pm the maker of that beautiful cake?
I used an impression mat; didn't find it hard to use at all. You can then go over it w/the sewing marker thingy (can't think of what it's called) to make the lines deeper.

I always just use a ruler and quilter. I mark the bottom x inches apart, then use a triangle shape--card stock works well since it's flexible--and run the quilter lightly up the edge. Then I flip it around and go the opposite direction and go over the lines to deepen them.

Thanks guys, no time to wait for shipping to get videos icon_sad.gif . But I am going to try to do my best, if it doesnt work I will justm rip it off and do it smooth. I refuse to kill myself for a free cake icon_rolleyes.gif .
