Fondant Quilting

By embossing lines in a lattice pattern, you will give your cake a great quilted look. Use the single-wheel Cutter/Embosser to create the imprinted lines. Quilting can be done on a cut fondant piece or directly on your fondant-covered cake. It's a textured look that's perfect for baby or garden-themed cakes.

Steps:

Step 1: Roll out fondant

Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick on your Roll & Cut Mat sprinkled with cornstarch. Cut the desired size piece using the straight-edge wheel of the Cutter/ Embosser. (You may also create the quilted effect directly on your fondant-covered cake.) Lightly roll the Cutter/Embosser wheel over your cut piece to create diagonal lines. Use a small ruler and a straight edge to guide your wheel to space the lines evenly..

Step 2: Roll wheel

Roll the wheel in the opposite direction to create a diamond quilted pattern.

Step 3: Attach to cake

If needed, attach piece to cake using a damp brush.
