I am interested to find out what the best way to do the diamond quilted look on MMF would be. Any tips on how to get this look? Thank everyone!!
I bought an diamond impression mat through Global Sugar Art & it works great. They have different size diamonds depending on how large of a design you want. www.globalsugarart.com
i have made a pillow and purse with this diamond pattern (both found in my pics) on it and all i used was a sewing tool. i don't know what the name of it is, but it is a sewing wheel of sorts with interchangable heads. i lightly run the wheel over the mmf at an angle-just enough to make an indent, and then go the other way making a diamond pattern. if you don't have that, try a thin ruler, put it on edge to make your marks. it will be more challenging but will work. hth!
Thanks for the tips! So do you just make the impression after the MMF is already on the cake? I just want to make sure that I don't ruin it by doing it before and then accidentally stretching it out. I have a tool like the sewing one so I will definitely give that a try
yes, i applied the fondatn to the cake, them roughly measured with a ruler where i was going to start my first line, then gently rolled accross the fondant-i think it works great b/c you are able to follow around curves and such. and i didn't have to worry about stretching! good luck. remember to press gently at first. if you feel you need more relief, go back over your lines. better to use a soft hand at first.
Thank you so much! I am really excited to try this now
