I have seen these cakes with that kinda quilted effect with a pearl in the middle of where the lines cross. Well I was wondering if it was done by a tool, an impression mat or just by hand??
I need some help please
Hi Tania, welcome to cc.
Most of them are done with an impression mat that you can get through globalsugarart.com.... or elsewhere online. Some are done by hand but its really a lot of work (believe me I tried, then i ordered the mat )
Just a suggestion - in the subject line of the thread actually put what you want answered like "wondering about criss cross line on cake" or something because it helps people who have the answer look at the post. Everyone is really great on here, but i have read about new people that get upset because their posts are ignored and lots of the time its because the subject line is something like "newbie question" or "new here"...
Second the impression mat.
Thank you very much to all that replied! And thanks for the welcome, and i will keep in mind the subject line thing.
Now when you are using the mat, do you put it on the fondant while it is still rolled out on the table, or use it while the fondant is on the cake?
If you use it when the fondant is not on the cake, then how would you get the designe only on the sides?
I think the mat works better on buttercream and diamond metal cookie cutter on fondant. Hmmmm.... or am I just weird?
