I went to Micheals and got a 2nd set of wilton square cutters and squished the sides to make the diamond. I did all three to match. Just line up the bottom points to the same angle. Worked for me, easy to find, and inexpensive.

There is a special cutter you can buy, but it sounds to me like the idea the previous poster had would work just as well.

The dark pink covers the whole cake.

The light pink is diamond cutouts attached to the dark pink. To do this, all you need is a ruler and a pizza cutter.

Roll out your fondant, decide how wide you want your diamonds to be (you'll need to figure it out by measuring the cake and dividing into equal sections). Then place a ruler on the fondant and use the pizza cutter to cut the lines, then cross in the other direction to make the diamond shape.

Or if you have the Wilton Ribbon Cutter, use the straight edges with the right sized separators, run one way, then the other. Diamonds!

Have fun!!

If you do a lot of these styles of cake, I would recommend buying the diamond cutter set from Ateco. The set has lot of sizes to it, so you can easily pick a size that matches the cake you're working on.

I love the Ateco ones. I think I have them in everything except the diamonds. I will have to pick them up next time I see them. Thanks for the reminder.
