I've always thought quilted cakes were very pretty but I never tried to make one until now. I think it came out really great. It was much easier than I expected too. I bought a cutter that you just press into the side of the cake and it makes 3 diamonds, then you just keep rotating the cake and pressing in the cutter. I put silver dragees at the corner of each diamond. The topper and the roses are gumpaste. This has to be one of my favorite cakes!
