I absolutely LOVE the look of quilted fondant, but I don't have a clue where to start. Any suggestions or tutorials would be super. Thanks!

Some people buy little diamond cutters and just cut the fondant. There are also fondant mats that have a diamond impression. And then other people take a ruler and lay it sideways and then run a little circular tool beside the ruler. Then you go back the opposite direction.

I just found a cool tool for quilting that is three diamonds stacked on top of each about making quilting easy! They come in different varieties too... Have fun!

There is a few ways of doing them.
You can use a diamond mat to leave an impression. This works great in crusting buttercream too.
You can use a 3 diamond cutter over fondant.
Or you can use a triangle ruler and mark them manually. This one is a bit more time consuming, but works great.
