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.
the price is right

Nice Find K8memphis!
Cavities are too big (1/2"), thanks, we're getting closer but no cigar. Hugs.
Have a look at this tutorial, it might be of help to you:
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 ;)
the picture cannot be to scale though
$10 for a 6"x6" swatch or $75 min order ouch
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!
one of these maybe
wow all sizes
very cool, rebecca!!
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
