Embossing technique is a basic form of cake decorating idea. It is an art of imprinting decorative designs on fondant. I have never tried embossing on any other types of icing except fondant, and can assure you, it produces stunning results and is definitely worth trying.
Embossing technique has long been used in decorating cakes and is very easy to master. So much so, there are so many tools available in the market today. If you are new to cake decorating, if might be a little difficult for you to find some of these tools because they are not all called embossers. Some are called pattern presses, cutters and even impression mats. But they all do the same thing – emboss beautiful intricate designs and patterns on fondant.
Let me show you an embossing technique using just plunger cutters, plain icing nozzles or tips and a pizza cutter. To do this all you need is fondant, plunger cutters or cookie cutters,round tip nozzles in various sizes and a pizza cutter.
In embossing the pattern, always remember to not press the patterns all the way to the bottom of the fondant as that will result in your cutting out the patterns of your fondant. When embossing patterns on fondant, we only want to leave the pattern impression on fondant and not totally cut the patterns out.
Hope you enjoyed reading this.
Happy embossing on cakes :)
