Bubble Wrap as a fondant design

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

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.

Cavities are too big (1/2"), thanks, we're getting closer but no cigar.  Hugs.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

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 ;)

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!

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?
