Sweet embossing tools

Embossing on rolled fondant

As a little follow up to my last post I wanted to share with you some of the sweet embossing tools that I like to use.

Patchwork Cutters has a large variety and many different designs and you can even use some of them as cutters if you like.

I also like the small embossing sticks from Holly Products. That comes with 6 sticks in each set. The ones that I have are the Flower Embroidery set 10, the Nursery set 12 and the Side Designs set 2 (I have used set 10 and 12 on the blue fondant)

Which kind of embossers do you like to use?

Happy Caking!

    Louise, I know that you read these comments and I think it is amazing that you take the time to answer all of our questions. Thank you so much for that and for the inspiration you provide me. 🙂

    I have the Patchwork Cutters crib set that I purchased somewhere … sometime. I finally decided to use it for a baby shower cake, but there are no instructions. I’ve searched online, but have come up empty handed. Can you recommend a source that I can go to for these instructions or perhaps a tutorial?

    Thanks so much!

    Deepika, I know this might be too late an answer, but I work in Manhattan and there’s a store on 22nd Street that sells baking stuff. But here’s the thing, mostly everything is imported from the UK and that’s why it’s double the price! You are so lucky to be there.

    Hi Louise, Is there anyway to avoid the sugar paste topper getting soft when placed on top of butter cream or chocolate ganache.

    Thank you for all the great ideas! I would always use a rolling pin but then the fondant would end up streching! But this is great; I love these!

    Safia: Try and take contact to Flours Confections http://www.flourconfections.ca Maybe they will be able to ordering them for you? I know that they stock some of Patchworks.

    Sylvania: it depends on where you are located?

    anncoo: please share with us the name of that bakery shop. It is always nice to where they can be purchased

    Deepika: Try and search for: “cake decorating supplies manhattan” I know some sites will come up. But again you can get the most of it in the UK and the price is much cheaper I think. I only shop from the UK sites 😉

    Yamel: Well I know that many use scrapbooking stamps ect. to emboss fondant the only thing is that they are not made to be used on fondant= not foodgraded materials. I personally would not have a problem with that, but I am sure that it would be alot different if you very in business.

    Modelling chocolate is good when you want choc roses or anything else edible on your cakes that has a nice chocolate flavour.

    Patricia & RoseIraNatasha: Try and take contact to Cake Connection http://www.cakeconnection.com.my they may be able to help you out. Also check YM’s comment no 29

    Zahra: Flour Confections have them: https://www.flourconfections.ca/shop/product_info.php?cPath=57_69&products_id=1083

    Carol: Black can be hard to work with. If you can (depending on what you are decorating) try and let the black icing dry abit before you ad the next color or vice versa. You should not refrigerate the cookies. I have heard from others living in the tropics that they too had problems getting the icing to dry. Some use the oven, but im not sure that is an good idea. Im not sure that I can give you a good answer on the problem, sorry 🙁

    Kate: The embossing sticks makes a small pattern, yes. I would use large scrolls cutters ect. only not pressing them through the fondant on bigger cakes. Most of Patchworks can be used on cakes aswell.

    illy: Please see YM’s comment.
