Hi!

I have a bride wanting this cake and I'm having a bit of trouble figureing out how the pattern on the ribbon is done. The described it as fondant impressed with a grid but I can't figure out where to find, how to do it so that I get the "lattice" look. Any and all help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Maybe it is that plastic stuff that people used to run yarn through so it kinda of looked like needlepoint or counted cross stitch. kwim?

Ron Ben Israel made that, so I would start by checking sources known to him, even his staff. They are really helpful.

This may be sugarveil lace. though I can't tell for sure from the picture.

They have a lace mat that you spread the sugar veil across and it drys to a very pretty lace.

I saw on a cake show a few weeks ago how they used styrene light panels (can be found at Home Depot or Lowes) to make a pattern on the fondant similar to the look on this cake. I checked Home Depot website and its about $6 for a large piece. Styrene light panels are the plastic covers for the light fixtures on ceilings.[/img]

What if you rolled the fondant on a mesh screen? Like maybe one of those screens that you use to keep fried foods from splattering?

Yes they are panels that cover the long fluorescent tubes. I have used this for sides of the cake. It would be done flat first of all and then adhered to the cake. I got mine from a broken one.

It says that Martha Stewart made it. Did Ben make it as well?

LOL @ Martha Stewart making it. But no, really, she did not make it. That is a classic RBI>

But really, I missed where it said MS made it? The S watermark at bottom is for her website, but she did not make that cake.
