Many thanks for this, I've already had a read of that thread and yes it does have some useful tips. I was just really wondering if the zig zag was cut from sugarpaste or airbrushed? It's quite hard to tell from the picture

I don't think it airbrushed. The cake in my avatar is a big chevron pattern that I did from really thinly rolled fondant so you don't see the edges of the pattern that much. Check out Jessicakes blog about transferring chevron onto a cake using waxed paper. It really helps keep everything straight without stretching the pattern when applying it to the cake.
