Hey guys! Just a quick little tutorial on the Fondant buffalo plaid technique I used for this cake. It was a pretty simple process and fondant wrap design.

First I printed out a bear silhouette the size I wanted from online and cut it out. I rolled out my background color which was red.

I trimmed it slightly larger than the bear silhouette.

Using this quilter tool I made an impression of squares. If you don’t have this you can use a ruler and lightly impress at 1” marks. Do not cut through.

I roll out my black fondant slightly thinner than the red. Using the same tool or rule cut all the way through.

Place them onto the red in alternating boxes. Skipping the next line and then repeating on the third and fifth.

If you have the quilting set, it comes with this little impression square which adds a nice detail. You can use it alternating blocks in each row.

Next we rolled out a long strip of brown to the length and height of the Cake for a wrap. Using the bear silhouette and a sharp razor blade carefully cut out the bear.

Use a wood pattern impression mat to mark the Fondant.

Trim it up. Line it up with your Cake. Carefully lift it up and wrap it around the Cake concentrating on adhering the bear silhouette first to the plaid. Cut the remainder off at the back and seal.

Use a pair of kitchen scissors to trim rough cuts into the top at random angles and lengths. I added two little logs with the cut off brown.

The same pattern was made on the top tier. We did a fondant wrap in red. Once on the Cake we then used the impression mat and added the squares and lines. A bottom strip of black was added and two strips of black for the suspenders. The buttons and bow were from a mold from Wilton’s line.
