Gold Embossed Wedding Cake

A friend of mine brought me her eBosser by Craftwell to try out on a cake.  It's an electric embossing machine that embosses a full-sized sheet of paper.  It's self-propelled, so you don't have to crank it through, so it is sooo easy to use!

I haven't had much success with fondant yet, but haven't really had time to try, either.  The gold and white embossed sections are frosting sheets - a commercially produced sheet of frosting that can be cut printed on, and now embossed.  

So I'm looking forward to trying it out on some different techniques.

As you can see, the gold frosting sheet held the embossed pattern much better than the white.  Different brands, and I suspect that the white was too moist to hold the impression well.  The other disadvantage to working with it in the design I used is that the longest piece is only 11" which means that if you're wrapping a cake, it will have to have a seam (you can easily see the seam on the left-hand side of the gold tier).  I'm still trying to figure out how to work around that.

Lots of fun possibilities, though!
