How to get this diamond effect on Buttercream

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello dear CC'ers

 

I am trying to use this image as an inspiration for a two tiered cake. Not sure if doing a square or round yet but leaning to a square. My question is the middle diamond pattern on the image. I know there are diamond imprint mats out there for the diamond pattern (have never used one). If I have a white crusted bc top 6" tier, how can I get the imprint of diamonds with pink outline? Also, could you suggest which mat would be a good buy as I have limited time and can only order at Fondant source for a local pick up. 

 

I am not able to attach links but here are my options at f o n d a n t s o u r c e dot com

Small Diamonds

 

Thanks for your help and any input/suggestions/advise!

Because you are using buttercream., you have several better options than a may.
There are diamond fondant cutters which can be used to make the imprint then pipe over them. You can also make an angel cut template to trace the pattern.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

I would use something like this, and gently press it into the buttercream.

I agree, use the metal marker as a guage, then overpipe the lines with pink icing.

I have the diamond fondant cutter. I gues si will have to do some math to get them evenly around the cake. Whats an angle cut template? Like, Jessicakes style?

Any tips on piping neatly over? These will be the sides of the cake.
