I want to make a cake with a fondant bow that has a corduroy texture. Could somebody please give me some ideas? I tried using the side of a ruler but that's too time consuming and not even enough.

Try using actual corduroy and press it on. I got that tip using lace. You could pass it through a pasta machine also with the corduroy. HTH

I have a ridged impression mat I got in a pack sold for using with clay.

I use a ribbed rolling pin and before I got that I used to use a ribbed piece of copper curtain rail if you can lay your hands on it-very cheap.

I never thought of that, sounds like a great idea, I will have to check out the attic, I wonder what else I could find there to use on fondant, thanks

You can also make interesting designs by putting rubber bands on your rolling pin.

Oh yeah! Or else you'll end up spending so much money on tools you might not get much use out of!
