cake boss diamond pattern

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Last night my DH and I were watching Cake Boss on TLC. He was putting a quilted diamond pattern on a square cake. He used the quilting tool and a ruler to do it. My question is (and it may be a dumb one) was the ruler angled on the end that was touching the cake board, that way it was always on a flat surface so the angle for the pattern was identical? If so, where would I get one? If not, how did he keep such symmetry? Also, could you do on a round cake too?
I have a diamond impression mat, but I have the hardest time using it on fondant. My cake always wants to slide around when I push on it. Maybe I am doing something wrong.

Hey,

I have seen the episode as well. I am pretty sure he is using a quilting ruler (it looks like a triangle) and it is touching the cake. I am pretty sure he does the top first and then the sides so that he can line them up properally. I am not sure if that is right or not! I just ordered an impression mat so we will see if i can do it!
Good luck!

You want a right triangle tool and a quilter wheel.

Thank's for the link. I have probably half a dozen triangle rulers at home I could use with all sorts of angles. I never thought of that.
Thanks.

In a pinch, you can even cut a right triangle out of cardstock and use that as a guide.

Does anyone know where I could find a Diamond Impression Mat here in Canada?? Most of the ones I see online are from the US..

RE:the rulers, I bought a 45/45/90 and a 30/60/90 triangle ruler at my local office supply store very inexpensively. They work great!

have you tried Golda's in Mississauga? They carry everything....just google golda's kitchen and then do a search under fondant tools for impression mats. Maybe Icing Inspirations have it too. another one you can google as they carry lots of supplies. I've never ordered from icing inspirations, but do so regularly from Golda's . I love ordering from there....great service! Good luck with your search

Re: Availablility of impression mat in Canada


You could also try creative cutters. I have ordered from there to a few times and their service is awesome.

I haven't seen the mat at Golda's personally, but maybe they only have that on-line only.

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but Flour Confections in Pickering has a set of 4 impression mats, one of which is diamond. http://www.flourconfections.ca/shop/impression-mat-set-curly-beard-sweater-diamond-curly-p-1856.html

Edited to add:

You could also try Cake Mischief...they have a diamond roller that may be useful as well as two quilting tools. http://www.cakemischief.com
