I am desperately searching for the rolling pin that makes this pattern. I have googled everything from textured rolling pin to acrylic rolling pin to quilted rolling pin to diamond rolling pin and I can't find anything that really looks like it's the same. Help!!!!
I thought that maybe it was custom at first, but since more than one decorator on different sides of the country have the same look I'm thinking it's not custom.
The first one i really cant see. The second and third one are different, like they are reversed
It looks like the texture on the red cake could be made using a piece of plastic canvas, the stuff you make different ornaments out of. You can most likely find it right in walmarts.
The blue looks to be a reverse of that pattern, this could be done by making a silicone mold of the plastic canvas and using that to emboss your fondant.
Of course i could be way off base but that is what it looks like to me. Looks to be embossed at an angle.
I'm pretty sure avalondeco .com has that. Cal David.
Plastic canvas! BRILLIANT! (BTW..this definitely falls into the category of "you know you are a cake artist when..." LOL!)
Unfortunately I can't get a better close-up photo for you all to see in any of the cakes that I found this pattern on.
It's definitely not the plastic canvas (Although that is a good idea). The shape in all the cakes is more of a diamond and canvas is very square. Also, the points of the diamonds are a bit more recessed than the lines all the way around the diamonds.
Also, the avalondeco.com site doesn't have the correct pattern either. There is one that's somewhat close that I've seen in person before, but the pattern is inversed with the lines between the diamond shapes up and the diamond shape recessed.
Thank you for trying though. The quest continues.....
Sheets of acrylic plexiglass !
They are commonly used as lighting diffusers over fluorescent tubes
I just looked at my small embossing rolling pins and have something that is very similar. Let me see if i can figure out where i got it from.
I found a small roller at Choco-pan.com that looks close.
OMG! OMG! Prismatic sheet!! I THINK THAT'S IT!!! Whoever you are, you have my undying gratitude!!! FABULOUS!!!!!
Actually, the roller from Choco looks like it might work, too. I found I think the same one on the CalJava site, but I wasn't sure how big the pattern was. I think that the picture on the Choco-pan site gives me a better idea. I think I'll order that one, too and see if it's what I'm looking for. I can't really have too many tools, right?!
Thank you, thank you, thank you by the way!
I bought a plastic sleeve that fits onto a 4+ inch diameter rolling pin that gives the diamond design. It is similar to the bags used here in Canada for oranges. It is fairly stretchy. It costs under $10
