Give your cake a great quilted look by embossing lines in a lattice pattern. Use the single-wheel Cutter/Embosser to create the imprinted lines. It?s a textured look that?s perfect for baby or garden-themed cakes.
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.
Roll the wheel in the opposite direction to create a diamond quilted pattern.
If needed, attach piece to cake using a damp brush.

I have the fondant quilting tool and used it to add a quilt look to my cake with rosette borders. This gives the cake that elegant look. A lot of people like the way it shows off the cake. I love this technique very great idea!!

I love the look quilting gives a cake!
I prefer to lay the fondant on the cake, smooth it out, then use a bendable manilla folder to make the quilting design. You can make sure the design is symmetrical on the cake and looks great!

I baked my first wedding cake last week for my mother's wedding and used this technique on a 4 tiered heart cake. I attached small candy pearls in the corners where the "stitchings" meet, and it was beautiful and looked so elegant!
