Hi
I hope someone can help. I am making a sneaker/trainer cake for my nephews birthday and need to get the correct tool to create stitching on the seems. In the past I have used a cocktail stick, but they never end up even and it takes for ever. Is there a tool I can purchase to make flawless stitching??
Thanks

It's the pointed tool wheel. You can also get it @ Hobby Lobby and Michaels.

This is a tracing wheel that you would use for fabric and you could probably get it at any fabric store.

Don't know if you have Wilton in the UK, but I just use my Wilton cutting wheel, with the pointed wheel inserted vs the straight edged wheel.
