Ateco Crimpers and Sculptors

Ateco Crimpers and Sculptors

Hi, I’m Julie Bashore from the Sugar Arts Institute and I’m going to show you how to work with the Ateco crimpers. There are a lot of things that I really like about these crimpers. The first being that the edgers are plain, not serrated, giving a much cleaner crimp with the exception of two crimpers where the serrated edge really enhances the design. They are made of stainless steel and have little O rings on them to regulate the opening. The crimpers are very easy to handle; most people when working with crimpers work directly on the side of the cake, however, because I don’t have a straight eye and am inclined to be a little clumsy, I find that often I go crooked on the cake and then I have to strip the whole cake down. So rather than having that frustration, I prefer to work on panels and attach them to the cake, and this allows me a lot more freedom to create an assortment of designs. So, let’s go ahead and see how they work. The first crimper that I’m going to be using is called the closed V. The word crimp means to pinch, so effectively what you are doing is you’re touching the surface, squeezing it closed, releasing it, and up. The word pinch does not mean go below the surface and draw blood. Just set the crimper on the surface, squeeze it closed, open and release. Let me show you how that’s done. Just sit it on and squeeze, making sure that each crimp touches the previous one. There you have a nice even row of crimpers. Then, turn the crimper upside down, and making sure that the ends touch one another, bring the bottom of the crimper up to the top and make a V design. The 2 V’s together create a diamond, which is a delicate design in itself. Keep working down the design to create a panel. The rule of thumb is straight lines for men and curves for ladies, so this is a great design that can be used on a man’s cake because it’s straight lines. Remember: touch down, squeeze, release, and up. Each crimp must close tightly on the previous one. There you have a design of diamonds that can be cut out separately and attached as a panel directly to the cake. That was the closed V, and now we’re going to work with the open V which is like a quilted diamond. The same effect, touch down, squeeze closed, release, and up. Come into the next row buffing the crimper right up against the previous design and squeeze the bottom to the top and keep going. This gives a panel with the opposite effect of the previous crimper, the closed crimper. It gives a quilted look, which is very elegant and very tidy, and also because it is straight lines, is ideal for a man’s cake. And I will get the modeling tools to show you how you can actually finish off the design so it looks attractive. Working with the small bowl tool, I’m going to create another dimension by gently scalloping the outer edge of the panel. Just catch the edge and push it out. I’m going to do the same with the closed. This neatens the edge and also gives it a third dimension, so you’ll actually have 3 layers.
