I have a bride wanting a honeycomb design on her cake sides. I can find a smaller honeycomb impression mat but can't find a nice long strip to avoid lines between each section. After a lot of on line investigation, someone suggested I use bubblewrap to impress the design. Has anyone actually done this and do you press down with your hand to get the design or use a rolling pin and risk the bubble wrap popping. OR, even better, does anyone have a source for a long impression mat in a honeycomb design (not a stencil). Thanks much.
Cavities are too big (1/2"), thanks, we're getting closer but no cigar. Hugs.
the mold is actually a bit bigger than half inch
lucky you i've found my long last camera and i made this nutso 'fondant' or something that never dries out--never--i don't even cover it up -- if it starts growing i'm outa here!!!
so this ^^^ is the mold i showed you--if you can keep it from stretching you can get six rows on--this is a 12x4 dummy--and i only got 5
is this closer? ish?
the second one up there is nubbley shelf liner
and also consider plastic cross stitch 'fabric'--it is little squares and not hexagons but it comes in many different sizes and if you put it diagonally it really gives that 'impression' (pun intended)
oooh--what about the orange produce bag material?? netting???
and as for bubble wrap--it would not be precise enough nor small enough imo
hey--maybe not a cigar but how 'bout some cake scraps at least ;)
I have multiple doll house flooring sheets with textures that I use all the time. You can find them at hobby shops. They even have a small selection at Hobby Lobby. I have seen a hexagon shaped floor tile that would work great if you can find it. I have seen it at Hobby Lobby before. The sheets come in large 14" x 18" pieces! They are recessed on one side and raised on the other. So you have 2 choices! They work great. Good luck!
ebay has the hexegon dollhouse floor sheets for $6.95 that are 12 x18. Tried to post picture and link but it won't let me since I am new to this forum. Good luck!
Wow you are so very helpful. The first picture you posted of the honeycomb is exactly what I am looking for. Did that come from the mold you got on ebay the link you posted?
thank you, ericah--the link is just to show the visual of the mold--i probably got mine at michael's or hobby lobby--if you are near any of those
best to you
