So, I guess everyone has seen that gorgrous cake uploaded by DesignerCakes...bravo! I didn't want to PM her, I would imagine she is getting slammed with messages as it is about that gorgeous stencil work!

My question is, I know people stencil with buttercream onto the fondant, or pin prock the design on to fill in with royal icing, but I am wondering about a different method.

Has anyone tried placing a thin sheet of fondant on TOP of the stencil and rolling over it with a rolling pin, to force the fondant through, like a cookie cutter?

Would that work? Is it already a method that I am just not aware of? I mean, if that damask cake was done with royal icing...ok, bravo, I wouldn't attempt it, but "stamping" it out sounds feasible. Would require a lot of plucking up off the mat and placing individual pieces, but it would be a clean operation, no?

I only have two pictures posted here, but one of them is a damask cake that it all cut outs on bc. Not exactly what you asked about , but similar.

Cool, did you cut out the fondant with an exacto knife? I guess that's what I am wondering as well. Sounds very tedious!

May I ask how you stick the fondant to the buttercream. I always seem to have trouble getting the two to stick together. The peices just slide down the side.

I wet a folded up viva paper towel and pat the back of my cut out piece on it and then stick it to the cake. It only needs to be slight dampened, not real wet or it may slide on you.

I use a non-crusting bc. And then just slap the fondant cut outs on there.
