I have someone how wants to have the scalloped look like the top two tier. Does anyone know how this is done. Do you cut it once it is on the cake or do you use a cutter and cut it first and them add it to the cake. I pm the person who did this cake a long time ago and she never got back to me so I I wanted to know if anyone has any idea's.

Thanks so much!!

I'm not expert but I would think you would cut it before you put in on the cake. Maybe use the wilton fondant mat to get the perfect size round then scallop the edges.

Good luck!

Thanks! I will try it before the cake is due.

Yes, I agree. You will have to be careful moving the cut piece onto the cake so yiou don't stretch it out of shape.

I just did one similar to that idea this last weekiend and I cut it once it was on the cake. I was afraid it would lose it's shape if I cut it prior to placing on the cake. However I had a border on the scallops.

I have done the same design a couple of times and I have found it almost impossible to cut it once it is draped on the cake so I do it before. I roll it a little thicker to avoid stretching. Pretty cake....please share your pictures.
