I'm doing a cake for my best friend's baby shower. Its gonna be 2-tiered and decorted in blue, green and brown with safari animals made out of fondant. My idea was to imprint animal prints onto the diamonds on the second tier, but I want them to be subtle... just an imprint. Thats why I thought the imprint mats would work perfect... but I cannot find anything to use. If anyone has ANY suggestions I'm more than willing to listen. Thanks!

Hi, you can paint the designs on to the fondant. Here is how you can do zebra stripes,

Check the scrapbooking or clay section of a craft store for the mats.

Call Nicholas Lodge's store - he sells a package of animal skin impression mats. There are 5 or 6 different ones for maybe around $11. I have two sets icon_redface.gif - can never remember what I've already bought. At any rate - call the store on their toll-free number - customer service is great. Store is International Sugar Art Collection in Norcross, GA.
