I made a construction site cake (see my photos) and just rolled a toy tractor with treads along the soft fondant. Then I emphasized the imprints with some black petal dust. It lookes pretty convincing.

I have used needlepoint canvas. Because it's not very deep, I got a better impression off the cake. After rolling over the canvas on the fondant with a rolling pin, I trimmed the fondant and wrapped it around the cake. Then, placed a circle of fondant on top. Unfortunately, the impression didn't show up in any photos, but it was really cool in person. icon_smile.gif

Sorry, I grew up in Minnesota -- you would think I would remember what a hockey puck looks like!

Hope it works for you amyroy1! I've also used the plastic mesh to make the rubber floor you see at an ice rink. I'd show you a pic, but the site won't allow pics to be uploaded at the moment. If you really want to see it, you can email me at eyedewcakes @ yahoo . com (take out spaces).
