Hi

I am new to actually posting on the board, though I read it almost every day icon_smile.gif I am new to the cake decorating game using fondant and I keep seeing fondant crimpers, how to do they work and what would you use them for? Is this a common item that would be used a lot? Thanks for any help!!

crimpers just make a small design in the fondant... some are hearts, some are lines, just different designs. They are small (under 1 inch usually).... some people use them to decorate the edge of their fondant covered boards as well. Some use them to go around the top of the cake.. on the edge.

Thank you, I kept looking at them thinking they were to designed to make a rolled boarder, or crimp the edge of the fondant if it stood up past the top of the cake. Either way I thought would be disaster so I thought I should ask the professionals on this site. Now that you mentioned it I have seen designs on the edge of some cakes but didn't put 2-2 together icon_smile.gif thank you!!
