how do you trace an image on fondant that you want to cut? I am trying not to use cutters.
Not sure if I'm understanding you correctly, but I've used paper patterns in the past. If it's something that has multiple colors, can you simplify the image and then make a pattern out of paper or waxed paper?
Well, a graphite pencil is non-toxic, if that's what you're talking about..
well I was reading a post and the bakers explanation of how she got the image on the cake was that she traced it. I was wondering how she did that.
Without knowing what cake you are referring too, cutting out shapes in fondant is just like cutting shapes out of fabric or paper: lay a pattern over the fondant, then trace with a non-toxic pen/pencil or use a stylis.
Cut using a sharp knife, craft knife, or cutting wheel.
