how do you do a diamond pattern on fondant, is it an embossing mat or is it done some other way? i would be grateful for any advice, thanks
i am not sure if this is how you get to see the cake i am refering to, if not the cake is of a childs bed and done by cooke13
You want to buy an impression mat to make that design. I'm not sure which stores/websites you would want to use to get them in the UK, but in the US, you can get them from globalsugarart.com or countrykitchensa.com. They are usually between $5-$10. I have also seen decorators make the pattern themselves with a ruler and either a pizza cutter or stitching wheel tool. You just have to measure and make sure everything lines up how it is supposed to. I personally use the mat to ensure that it is even. HTH! : )
thank you for the reply, i will go on ebay and have a look on the squires sugar craft website.
Also look for " diamond quilting marker " which is a series of diamond sized cutters linked together, which is another way to do it.
I like the diamond quilting marker best for fondant and the impression mat for buttercream. I have also used a small diamond cutter, but you have to have a good eye to keep it straight with that method.
thank you everybody for your advice,
