My friend is getting married next year and she wants me to do a strip of damask design on top of cupcake. How would you do this? Is there a stencil? I thought of buying transfer sheets, but I am worried that the design on the sheet will be too big and look funny if I cut it into a strip.

Any suggestions??

Oh my gosh!! I love those damask stencils!! I have been looking for that thinking it was a cutter!! But do you adhere the stencil to the cake while you paint or color it in? How do you do that part? Do you just hold it up with that 11th finger? icon_rolleyes.gif

The damask stencils from Designer Stencils are the way to go. They work well with either buttercream or royal icing on top of crusted buttercream or fondant.

I.S.A.C. (international sugar art collection) sells a great rolling pin that imprints a damask design
