Hi, can someone tell me the best way to space evenly dots that i'm going to pipe onto cake. I'm making small dots in groups of 3 around for a wedding cake but just wondered if there was an easy way to make sure they are all spaced exactly the same..

Would i use a paper template? then punch holes with a toothpick or something??

Thanks icon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif

Eyeball it by piping your dot group on the front, the back, left & right sides, then add another group in between those. Continue your next row by piping them in the empty space above (or below if you started at the top), which is also in between the previous set of dots.

there are impression mats for marking the sides of your cakes for even dot spacing, but if you dont have those you can do it several other ways.

using graph paper lay it on a sheet of styrofoam and push in half a toothpick at the square markings, use this to imprint on your cake.
do the same but just use the paper against the cake. or
Use a ruler to help you keep your dots evenly spaced.
