There is nothing more time consuming than using a ruler and marking or making a template to get perfectly straight and measured dot impressions! That is why, like so many others it was a huge sigh of relief when the FMM Press Ice was released. There are currently four of the Press-Ice tools available; Ribbon One, Ribbon Two, Polka One and Polka Two.
History of Press-Ice
The inspiration and inventor of the Press-Ice was Lesley Bassett from Icing House and FMM are now the manufacturer of the Patent Pending Product.
How do I use it?
Using a Press-Ice is so simple, there are even instructions on the back and handy little hints such as; “To create a clear impression, Sugarpaste (rolled fondant) must be soft.”
The product also suggests to start at the back of the cake and finish there as well, this will make any join marks to be hidden away for a flawless cake.
Simply press the Press-Ice onto the cake, using an even pressure along the tool you can then remove the tool, continue around the cake.
Gill from Gill’s Cupcakes had made a cute little cake using the FMM Polka One.
