Add Texture to Your Fondant With Wilton Pattern Embosser Set and Pattern Rollers

April 26th, 2014 by Emily Tatak

Thumbnail-Wilton Pattern Embosser setAdding texture to your fondant is easier than ever, thanks to the new Wilton Pattern Embosser Set and interchangeable Pattern Rollers. While the dot pattern that comes with the handle in the two-piece set  is perfect for many occasions, I’m thrilled that I have so many other options. I can make a fun and funky cake using the leopard pattern roller. The burlap pattern roller lets me add a rough-hewn fabric texture to my fondant designs. The diamond pattern on the quilt pattern roller makes it easy to add the trendy quilted design. The sophisticated geometric pattern roller provides a subtle design for an elegant cake.

Watch how easy it is to emboss your fondant AND how easy it is to change the roller!

The ease of working with fondant is that you can use it for ribbons or border, or cover a whole cake with it. Also, you can easily add color with Color Mist food color spray or Pearl Dust edible accents. I bet you’re already thinking of ideas of what to do with these rollers — we’d love for you to share your thoughts with us. Just leave a comment below.

    I think this would be a very nice tool to have in designing Wedding Cakes, my question to you is: How would you roll this design on just the sides of the cake to get a detailed design? Or would we have to roll the fondant flat out then use the roller(s) Do you have a video on how this is done (if it can be done). Thanks

    I very recently saw a display board at Michael’s that showed a cake with a fondant ribbon around it that was textured with the burlap roller and then lace shapes on top of and bordering the burlap. My hope is that you were the decorator for this because my future daughter-in-law would like me to approximate this look on her wedding cake. I’ve looked through the Wilton cakes on-line but am not able to find this one. Can I get some direction on how the lace pattern was done? I can send a picture of the display board if needed.

    Hi, thanks for showing us how to do this. Today I used the pattern roller for the first time and I found that, when I pressed my pattern on the fondant and picked it up to wrap around my cake the pattern kind of disappeared . How do you wrap the fondant around the cake without this happening? Thank you.

    Hey SUNY, I used the imprint roller a couple weeks ago for my daughters cake and opted to roll the impression directly onto the cake after it was wrapped with the fondant. There were no good videos and nowhere does wilton really say how they do it for best results. I took a chance and it paid off brilliantly. I was worried that the pattern would change if I tried to roll the pattern and then transfer the fondant to the cake, also the pattern orientation would be off. Btw, I used both the quilted and the dot pattern and I was very happy with the impression left.
