There are many differnt cake designs that require stitching to give them that wow factor. Many have asked me how do I do the stitching on my cakes. What do I use to get this effect on my Fondant covered Cakes. So I thought I would share how I do this and what I use!
I use 2 different tools depending upon which effect I need for a particular design.
The first is a Fondant impression Roller that comes with three detachable wheels-straight, wavy and ridged-for cutting and for embossing of patterns on fondant. Light, easy-rolling design cuts at the perfect angle.
1. To cut strips, attach the straight-edge cutting wheel of the Cutter/ Embosser-just snap the axle into the handle slot. Roll out fondant on the Roll & Cut Mat using grid marks to determine width. Roll the wheel along a ruler to cut perfect strips. A fondant covered purse cake is one example of what kind of cake that would require stiching to replicate the thread stiching and the zipper area. there are many other designs that may need the stiching and there are many other instances in which stiching cam be used on a cake.
