I thought at first this was just a brushed embrodery, but look how the flowers kind of stick out and how it is so very uniform in shape?

Is this brushed on gum paste/fondant then cut out and glued on? Any ideas on how this is done?

ah, never thought of that! So it isnt really buttercream at all, it is just brushed on paint on the cutouts?

I would say a cut out also, what I tried over the weekend was I bought a rubber stamp and mixed 50/50 fondant and gumpaste and then stamped the stamp and cut out the plaque for the monogram . This would work great for flowers for they have some nice flower stamps. Then just paint with your gels. Picture is in my photos red roses cake. Give it a try , I think you'll like it. It was really easy for a first try. HTH Good luck.
