How do I evenly space out dots on a cake? I want to pipe single dots on the side of a square cake. I know that you can buy impression mats, but I don't have one and am wondering if there is another way to do this. Do I just eyeball it?

Mark it with a toothpick. First, mark in quarters, then divide the quarters in half and keep dividing the spaces. You can also wrap a strip of wax paper around the circumference (exactly), take it off and fold it numerous of times. The folds will be your guide.

Hope I didn't confuse you.

I had this same question several months ago. My MOST favorite response was to print an image using MS publisher, word or whatever you use and then wrap it around the cake and poke the dots with a toothpick. Then go back in and pipe the dots. Good luck!!

Sugarmamma03, how did this turn out for you?
I can't find a dot impression mat for under $35 so I want to do it myself. It's for a wedding cake at the end of the month. I like the idea of printing out an image and using a toothpick but I'm not sure how to create the image...any help would be appreciated!
