Thread Starter 
Thank you so much for all your posts, I had been all day at an ICES day of sharing and I have just got home.

I am going to play with this and see how it comes out, I tried horizontal stripes already with fondant but they werenât very straight... (cake is in my pictures).

I love CC Thank you again!!

This is a bit late, but this effect of the horizontal stripes on chocolate clay is done using a screen (similar to a silk screen) to make the transfer sheets, that were mentioned earlier in the post, which are then transferec onto the chocolate. Having a screen made up is a bit, costly, but there was an article in ACD a few years back with instructions of how you can make your own screen, and then you can make your own transfer sheets.

The Kitchen Krafts and countrykitchensa websites have some pre-printed cake prints that you can just slap on the cake (I think it's like a transfer sheet). It can be placed on buttercream, fondant, chocolate, and fudge. They have a variety of prints and patterns:

It is in fact very easy - you cut fondant or modelling chocolate stripes with the pasta cutter. then use a little Crisco on a parchment paper  and put it together into the preferred pattern tightly against each other. accurately measure your cake diameter and cut your stripes sheet to the appropriate length.Then holding your sheet "transfer" it to the cake. the only cons to that is that method is that you will probably have a slightly noticeable seam at the back of your cake.Enjoy!

I believe Richard has this technique tutorial for purchase at http://cakemasters.com.  I just tried to get on and look but it appears the website is have technical difficulties.
