I need help. I want to try a cake with quilted fondant. I'm not sure how to get the "quilted" look. And do you quilt the fondant before or after you apply it to the cake? Any ideas?
It is done after it is on the cake.
There are special 'presses' to use or you can do it by hand.
I have found doing it by hand is not accurate As hard as I tried by marking and holding the ruler right (so I thought) when I got to the end it was off and looked bad.
i ve done it by hand. i did it on a square 10" cake, so every 2 inches, i made a small notch at the top edge. Then, starting at the notch nearest to the left corner, i used my tapered spatula to make an indentation from that mark to the bottom of the notch 4 inches from that. So, every top notch connected to every other bottom notch.
hope that made sense.
Glad you asked this. I've tried several techniques, and can't ever get mine right. I'm always off when I get done, and I hate it. Does anyone have any suggestions about where to start? The top or the bottom of the cake?
