Hi, im a cake novice! Just looking for help with quilting.
Im making a tiffany themed christmas cake and I would like the cake to sit on a quilted cake board. Just wondered if this is possible and has anyone done this??

I use the quilting tool by wilton.I think it is called the cutter/embosser. I have heard some people also use the knitting stick to create that quilting effect.

As for going about doing this....just cover your cake board in fondant and decide your quilting pattern and use the quilting tool. It should be fairly easy.

Hope this helps.

You can see in my photos the black and white shoe cake has a quilted board. Its really easy, but effective. I measured 1inch spaces all round the board on every side then joined them up diagonally with a set square using the pme embossing wheel (example here http://www.pandjkitchens.co.uk/products/details/3177.html)

I have used the Wilton tool but i dont get the "puffy" quilted effect that some cakes have. icon_biggrin.gif

you quilt the fondant with a lot of buttercream under or just use thick fondant??

I want this effect

Perhaps if you leave the fondant a bit thicker then usual before putting it on the cake?
