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

I agree--I think it's a diamond crimper:

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.

If you run your mouse over the picture you will see the Diamond one....3rd from the left.
