I am doing a graduation cake this week and the client wants a cake similar to this one http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1853028 I looked at Fondant rollers and can't find one with this impression, does anyone here know where I can get one by Thursday? Thanks in advance

it might be a stamp?

That might be an impression mat for use with clay too.......

I was actually thinking it may be a stamp as I was typing the question. I will check Hobby Lobby Tomorrow and Joanns and Michaels today. Thanks..I emailed the creator last week but no reply as of yet. I also googled impression mats and came up with nothing also.

Check out the scrapbooking aisle too. They have a lot of 3D pieces that work great as impression makers and they are a LTO cheaper than "real" things"

I think I've seen this one in the clay section at Hobby Lobby & Joanns.

I've seen it, too, but can't remember where. If the cake is for a female, you may be able to use the Wilton "Graceful Vines" impression mat. It is a little more floral and scrolly than the ferns but is still vaguely similar

http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=93495AAA-423B-522D-F11F0C5BE27A3F93&fid=D765FA12-1E0B-C910-EA65A78440A32A74

Looks to me like the ferns are impressed into the fondant rather than raised up from the fondant, just like the Wilton mat.

tasha27...I believe that's the Sculpey texture mat...I just purchased it and it looks just like the pattern on the cake.

It comes in a set of 2...Ferns & Squares

Thanks everyone for the replies FlourPots went to that link and it does look exactly like it, went to order it and......Its sold out. I am going to check the arts and crafts shops tomorrow since we are lucky enough to have all three I should find something. Ibmoser, I actually have that pin from Wilton but unfortunately this cake is for a male so that is a no go. Thanks again everyone icon_biggrin.gif

If you can't find it locally, they are in stock at QVC...that's where I got mine: http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx/view.2/app.detail/params.item.F190768.desc.Studio-By-Sculpey-Texture-Makers-Set-of-2

honestly dear i dont see why u are getting specific about the impression mat or roller.. unless the cutomer asked spicificly for it i dont think they mind the change.. u can always tell them that u will use antoher impression and hoenstly i dont think they would mind.. the main idea on this cake is not really affected by the impression. of course unless the customer wants it specifically

I'm so glad you got it...I should've linked QVC from the beginning, but their photo wasn't showing up for me, and I thought it might not for you either, so I found another site that showed the pattern clearer.
