I would really like to get the quilting effect on a cake I am making for this weekend. I finally decided (with the resources I have) to use a 45 degree triangle to get the straight lines. Now I am just wondering when to do the quiliting. Is it done right after putting on the fondant or should I wait until the fondant hardens up a bit? Or maybe it doesn't matter and I am worrying too much! I am using MMF.

Thank you for any help.

any texturing needs to be done as soon as the fondant is applied for the cake ie before the fondant skins over (which is normally about 20 minutes)

If you are using fondarific brand, you can wait because it doesn't harden, but for any other fondant, it has to be done immediately.

I know this won't help for this cake, but the three diamond quilter is awesome. I use it ALL the time. Check out my cakes and any with quilting, I've used it.

LOVE IT!!! With my semi-homemade white chocolate fondant, I've gone back and quilted after one hour with no problems.

A diamond impression and then roll over it with the stitching tool. What is this semi-homemade white chocolate fondant?? Sounds good..

Hi Ginger -

The semi-homemade fondant is really easy to whip up. The main ingredients are Pettinice and Mercken's super white choc. (candy melts). I developed the recipe and love it. Others do, too. If you would like to know more, please PM me.
