hi i am wondering how you get the diamond or quilt look on a fondant cake
Easiest way would be to get a diamond impression mat or you can use a ruler or some other similar object and impress it into the fondant.
There are many threads on this particular topic, here are just a few of the threads that might help:

I love the impression mat! I use it on buttercream as well. I am planning on doing a "practice" cake tomorrow with a new fondant that was recommended and the impression mat for the quilted look. I am excited. It is for practice for a wedding cake that I have commited to in April 2010.
thank you to all
country girl i would love to see your practice cake
coundtrygirl thanks for the picture you did a great job
I will have to try and find one of those mats
Thanks! The mat was only like $6, and they have all kinds of them. Some look like brick walls, cobble stone, they are endless!! I love the ides of how easy it is.
Good luck! Post a pic when you get to try it.
i will post a picture when i get a chance to try one
Mmmm, for fondant, get a three diamond cutter, look at the pink princess cake in my pics. It makes for a much cleaner defined look. Jennifer Dontz sells them on her site, SugarDelites. An indispensible tool for sure!
