I'm planning a cake that involves one quilted-effect tier and was wondering what the best way to achieve a nice, even (and straight!) square (or diamond) pattern is?

I've had impression mats suggested, where you hold it against the side and hope not to nick the lower tier...but that can't be the best way!

I will be rolling over the impression with my little wheel tool, but what's best for the initial measurement?

Hope someone with past success has some advice!

I like the impression mats. But you could cut yourself a right triangle of the dimensions you want out of a stiff paper or light cardboard, and use that.

Or go old school, with a ruler.
