Can someone please help me in figuring out how the top border was made on this cake? The triangle/diamond-like border with a serrated kind of edge around both the cake tiers? TIA!!
Oh sure, it's a metal impression tool. You press the metal tool against the fondant then squeeze the handle slightly and it makes an impression. Of course now that you ask - I'm having a major brain freeze and can't think of the name - but they come in all kinds of shapes and look like an oversized pair of tweezers. Now watch when I log off it will come to me. WAIT.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CRIMPERS!
I believe it was done with a crimper tool
Thank you everyone!! So it has to be used after covering the cake with fondant?
Any idea where I can find it locally? In michaels or hobby lobby? I have to do that cake in a couple days and can't order online.
Its a pretty specialized tool. I'd doubt the craft stores would have it.
Here you go fcakes...
They are freely available on Amazon.
This set is a good buy - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001332TXY/?tag=cakecentral-20 as you get 8 different crimpers in the set.
....... plus the tidy box to keep them in.
If you run your mouse over the picture you will see the Diamond one....3rd from the left.
Thnx!! I checked the craft stores today and none had them.... Can't order online coz I need it in 2days... Any tips on doing that without the crimper?
