A bride came to me with this picture ( i do not have a better quality that is why I am stumped) and I hope one of you have seen this sort of texture on fondant.

My question is how to make these sort of "scores" on the fondant without ripping it. Maybe they are just indentations? With a benchscraper maybe?

Also does anyone recognize those flowers?

Thank you guys! icon_biggrin.gif [/img]

I think there are multiple tools that could make those lines...a ruler pressed into the sides, the back of a knife, the PME tool on the right in this pic: http://www.craftersbasket.com/images/uploads/sugar-tools/pme-tool-2.jpg

Could you use dental floss or string to do that on fondant?

I used a barbecue skewer and just pressed it into the sides to create the design.

I would use a Dresden tool.
