I was wondering if anyone knows where I can buy a diamond cutter or even if anyone makes them. I am trying to achieve the look below and I am not good at cutting these things out myself! Thanks

ITS FUNNY BUT THE DIAMOND SHAPE WERE A LITTLE HARD TO FIND IN MY AREA WITHOUT ORDERING THEM...BUT OF COURSE I THOUGHT I'D FIND THEM EASILY AND WAITED TIL THE LAST MINUTE...SO I DID FIND SOME SQUARE CUTTERS FOR FONDANT AT MICHAELS CRAFTS AND JUST TURNED THEM SIDE WAYS. I STILL GOT THE LOOK I WANTED.

HOPE THAT HELPS. NEW TO ALL THIS STUFF.

What I actually did was bought another set of square cutters, then kind of squeezed the sides so they were more of a diamond shape. If I turned a square on an angle, it just didn't look quite like a diamond to me....so the squeezing a bit really helped. Good luck!
Here is where I used square cutters, just sideways...

Here is where I used square cutters that I permanently squeezed into a diamond...in my opinion, much better looking.

Ateco makes a set in many sizes. They're nested in a container. I found mine at Sur La Tab.

They're great because now I have one for every size cake! I love the harlequin pattern so I was thrilled to find them.
