I would like to quilt the sides of a shower cake, do I make a pattern and what do I use to make the lines? I already made pastel buttons to go at the point of intersection.

Any help would be appreciated or if anyone has seen a tutorial on this.

Thanks so much!

The Winbleckers have a How-to video on their site for quilting:

Best of luck with the quilting!

I just recently ordered from Global sugar, Earlenes Diamond impression mat. But I can't tell you how it works, I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet javascript:emoticon('icon_redface.gif') Sorry!

In class the teacher had used a paper template which she laid against the sides and marked, but I don't really remember how she did it.

I'm definitely going to watch the above mentioned video Thanks!

Thank you, never thought of using a cookie cutter to mark the fondant, will give that a try. Appreciate your comments.

I actually just did this on a cake. I used a pizza cutter lol. I used a sanitized ruler, laid it across the cake (making sure it was straight) and rolled my pizza cutter across it. Once I did the top, I did the sides & just connected the lines from the top - didn't use the ruler since it was such a short length and I could keep a straight line.

HTH, hope you get great results

I use this impression mat.

Works beautifully and Sharon was excellent to work with during the order process.

Here's another idea i saw on youtube..(i haven't tried it myself though). She used a cooling rack with a criss-cross pattern on it and used that to mark the fondant, she used those lines as her guide to cut and design her quilt pattern. Also my wilton instructor used a quilted sheet of paper towl and rubbed it on BC to make that quilted effect.

I just use a set of graduated diamond cutters to make the impressions after I cover the cake in fondant. That way I can change the size of the pattern.
