Which leaves a better impression on fondant....patchwork citters basketweave or the CK impression mat with the basketweave pattern. The CK one comes in a set with different patterns so in effect is cheaper but I want a really nice detailed impression and there is no good picture of the CK finished product. The patchwork cutter one looks amazing. Which do you use (if you have ever used them)

I have the patchwork one - and as long as your fondant is 1/4 inch thick it will leave a fantastic impression. thumbs_up.gif
AND it is so easy to line up as well...whilst going around the cake.
I find that because it is such a hard plastic - you can press really hard to get that *sharp clean* look.

ETA: - this is the one i use

There are basketweave rolling pins that work wonderfully. I find the rolling pins are much easier to use than the impression mats.
