I remember an old post about a cake done for oprahs birthday...it had a quilted texture to the fondant and someone one suggested the best way to get that effect using some type of old fashioned orange or lemon juicer or something like that. I have used the search option but can't seem to find the post. Does anyone remember the post or happen to know the name of the tool that works best for making the quilting into the fondant?

I do recall and I believe you're right. They suggested taking one of the old glass juicers and imprinting the point of it at every junction (after you've done the regular quilting on the cake). For the deeper quilted look, one suggestion was making the fondant thicker. But I think it was just the regular quilting tool, if I remember correctly. HTH!
