You can spray a wire cookie cooling rack with a little pam and press lightly into fondant for imprint..

I found a couple of packets of texture mats (Cedar Canyon), that I bought for paintsticking on material, that I have never got around to using.  They have quite a deep impression and worked brilliantly when I pressed them into the fondant.  That got me started so then I pulled out a packet of unused Fiskar paper crafting impression mats that I had picked up really cheaply on sale.  These worked o.k. but not as well at the impressions were not overly deep but still quite good for the top of cupcakes.

I've used a non-slip shelf liner to create a knit look for a sock monkey cake. also scrapbooking scissors with the different edges to create borders or i've used them to add a frilled edge on flower petals (since I can't buy every one...sigh)

I have used the following with good results!

 

Double mesh fine sieve to emboss centre of Sunflower - for baby shower topper

Meat BAT (textured end) to create a knitted pattern effect on a doily - for christening cake, baby shoes topper

Garlic press ( dont have a clay gun) for some grass effect on a base board - for funky christening cake

Fluted Scone cutter to make a round plaque - for 50th Golden Wedding cake

 

Examples regards to the use of the above kitchen untensils/equipment can be seen on some of my cakes in photo albums on Cake Central
