Hi Everyone

 

Can any of the UK members help me out?? 

 

Does anyone know where I can buy a diamond quilting tool from in the UK for embossing fondant? 

 

Been searching online but can only find them in America and the delivery charges are huge!

 

Thanks ;-D

APatchwork Cutters manufactures them! They have a couple of different sizes.

Thank you very much for your help with this, I really appreciate it.  I was looking for something more like this as opposed to a quilting mat.

APatchwork's is much nicer than that one. We use it a lot.

Hi Miss Pink, I have the Patchwork Cutter one, but to be honest, I find it fiddly enought to work with on round cakes, it's fine for squares.  For a round cake, I prefer to use "a set square" (refer them from geometry sets in school?) to mark the lines in the icing. I find this the easiest.

PS remember to do your quilting while the icing is still super soft!

I have one like the one you're looking to buy...

 

...  I still always use the Patchwork Cutters one.  With practice, it's very easy to line up and 'rock' it around a round cake.  However I find it very fiddly to line up the other type for every single impression.
