I'm making a birthday cake for an older lady that likes to quilt. I'm wanting to get that quilted effect on the fondant but i've never tried it before. I don't have any specialty supplies, so whats the best lo-tech way to do it? I hope i explained it well...icon_smile.gif

All I use to get that look is a plastic ruler turned up on it's side. Works great and keeps the lines straight. Only 39 cents at Walmart. Cheapest tool I have. HTH!

I just recently purchased an impression mat for that pattern from global sugar art. It's not very expensive at all.

I believe that Country Kitchen SweetArt has a diamond side design embosser $6.00 I have used it several times....I sometimes have to go over the lines to deepen them. That might be just a matter of prefference as to how deep you want your marks. Works great and a true and even diamond pattern. Hope this helps.

I just ended up using one of my daughters large lego pieces! Worked like a charm! =D
