Hi everyone! I need some help - I have been asked to make 2 sheet cakes for an outdoor function that is going to be like a "2nd wedding reception". The mother of the groom is requesting them to have a wedding look (if you know what I mean) I have seen that "diamond look with maybe a pearl or dot of royal icing? at the intersect done with fondant - only she wants it done in buttercream. How do I achieve that look? Or can't I do it with buttercream? Do I need to buy some type of tool/template to create? Thanks everyone for any help you can pass along

You can purchase diamond impression mats. This is where I bought mine. There are many other sites that sell them also. They are fairly easy to work with, if using Butter Cream, let it crust then dust the mat with powdered sugar or corn starch and impress into the sides of the cake. You can also use a ruler or a triangle and a fondant embossing tool to make the pattern too. I have done both, the mat does not always meet up and you have to adjust it to fit sometimes. This is just what works for me. HTH

I have two different tools that I prefer to use with fondant AND buttercream.

Diamond Cutters ( available in two sizes

Or I use a Diamond embosser
