I am about to purchase a set of crimpers for fondant. Can you tell me if you have used them and what your favorite style is that you use? Thanks!

http://www.lakeland.co.uk/serrated-crimpers/F/product/11854 i have these ones, think it works for most cake designs where you might need crimpers.

Start with these: alternative names are in brackets

they all come in varying sizes ..

Closed curve - serrated or straight [arches]
Open curve - serrated or straight [oval]

Closed Scallop - serrated or straight [double arches]
Open scallop - serrated or straight [figure 8]

Closed Vee - serrated or straight [angles]
Open Vee - serrated or straight [square]

Then either
Straight line - serrated or straight [lines]
OR
Waves - serrated or straight [s-curve]

Then there are ..
heart, holly, bowtie. etc etc

one of our cake club members did a crimping demo and her demo board is on our clubs face book page, take a look, denton cake club. It really made me want to buy more, they were so much fun to use. I couldn;t tell you which ones would be used most often, guess that would depend on the look you are needing. Where are you looking at a set from??

That demo board is awesome! I saved it on my computer, but I saved it with a name telling me where it came from. Thanks for telling us about it!

I tend not to use crimpers any more. I have quite a few and I like the heart ones, which I put around the edge of the board
