I need to duplicate the patterns on this invite. I believe I saw a cutter for the criss cross pattern before, however, I can't remember where? Also, for the damask pattern, I am assuming a stencil would be the route to go? I was REALLY hoping not to used a stencil though because I have horrible luck with them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I am pretty certain that the mob at makeyourownmoulds.com have a silicone onlay with that pattern. I think that is where I bought mine. I tried to check the site for you but my computer is being useless.
AI tried to use the marvellous mould damask onlay mould with terrible results. To the point that I ruined a christening cake and had to give the cake for free. Its the first time I've ever not been able to give a customer what they ordered! I hope you have better luck!
Using this http://marvelousmolds.com/onlays/double-wedding-ring would be the easiest way.
AThanks for the replies! Darn, I was hoping to find something cheaper, lol! Oh well, guess the supplies for this cake will be more than what I make!☺
There are other ways you can get that effect but will be time consuming. I did come across this http://www.wilton.com/idea/Diamond-Designs-Geometric-Fondant-Cake
Since I don't like buying things that I'll probably only use once, I'd just cut out a bunch of these shapes http://www.cakedeco.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=9747&p_catid=322&page=1 then use a circle cutter to lop off the ends and line them up on the cake using a straight line as a guide to make sure I didnt' get wonky with it.
Sugar Art Studios has a floral quatrefoil cutter in the shape you are looking for but it will be VERY time consuming to do. You will also have to make sure you measure and mark your cake to keep the pattern straight while applying.
Not Just Cakes by Annie also has a cutter. Their stuff goes out of stock really quickly so you have to sign up for their newsletter to find out when they are restocked. http://shop.notjustcakesbyannie.com/circle-diamond-pattern-set/
You could mark it off with a curcle cutter before putting the pattern on it. that way you'll keep the pattern regular.
AThanks for the suggestions!! I, too, hate buying supplies that I only will used once. I have a whole pantry full of stuff, lol!
get you ateco #4848 in the half inch or three quarter inch size -- less than ten bucks and if you don't have a set you need a set of the concentric circle cutters -- i have a 14 piece set so i can't vouch for the 11 piece set but you just need one right sized circle cutter --
this is in the one inch size which would make your cake about 16 X 24 if my rough calculations are correct so you'd probably want to go smaller --
Just came across this tutorial and thought of you. http://cakeoricandothat.blogspot.com/2011/08/congratulations-jeanette.html
AThank you both for the links and suggestions! So very helpful!
