I am sorry if this has already been covered, but I cannot find anything about it. Can anyone tell me or guide me to a tutorial or article on how to get that quilted look on fondant? I am new and I love this look. Thanks.

If you don't do quilting often and don't need the impression mat you can always use the 45% triangle shaped ruler and Wilton fondant embosser - easy and works just fineicon_smile.gif

cookiecutters, if you go Google Earlenes Cakes - you will find Quilting Mats on her site.
From memory there are 3 different sizes from 1/4 inch to 1 inch.

Clear hard plastic sheets -
I didn't find them expensive - even with the shipping from the States to Australia.

Hope this is of some help.
