I had a problem when I tried to score the surface of the fondant for the quilt pattern. It was too hard and I couldn't put a decent 'dent' in the fondant. It was tending to crack under the pressure.
by the time I'm done covering and smoothing a cake, it's already starting to get hard. So are there any tricks (besides working really fast?)

Then flip the triangle around and scootch around the cake in the opposite direction using the bottoms of your previous lines as starting points.

I like this method better than because you can control the size of the quilting, making the squares as small or as large as you like. You change the size of the square by changing the distance you scootch. The smaller the scootch, the smaller the square. And it really only takes a few minutes.

LOL - - and not one single person had a problem with "scootch" !

What's wrong with scootch? It means to nudge something over a little without picking it up.
