Regardless of which tool that is used how do you get it to line up perfectly????


Just wondering since I would like to add this technique to my cakes.

Icer 101 I absolutely agree with you about the Jennifer Dontz video. She explains the quilting technique so easily. Her cakes are always impecable and she answers any questions you might have. Really a wonderful person.

If you want puffy, you need the cutter I linked to. The cutter pushes the diamonds in, and the stiching tool helps to poof them out individually. An impression mat is not going to give you puffy. You need the sharpness to almost cut through the fondant.

Like Bob, here is a pic using the three diamond cutter. The lines are sharper, and you can see poofiness, but shadows and lighting on this pic aren't the best.

Thanks everyone. I like the diamond cutter -- I'm just not proficent with the impression mat. Oh well. All my work is done with the cutter. Jen's videos have a section on using the diamond cutter too. That's where I learned it. Plus Jen is a dream to deal with -- ask her anything! icon_biggrin.gif

If you have any questions about it, you can pm JenniferMI here or contact her from her website, she is an absolute sweetheart to deal with.

I used a quilting mat to make light marks on the cake and then used the back side of one of my knives to emboss the lines more deeply into the cake. Then I used the end of a dowel to make a space for the button tuck.
It turned out well. I wanted to try this today and not hunt down a cutter since I already bought a mat.
If you want to see a picture check my gallery. icon_surprised.gif)
I enjoyed this and will continue to play with it.

Were none of the suggestions already listed helpful?
