I have been asked by a friend to create the attached wedding cake and I am stumped on how this design was created. Is this fondant pieces that are cut out and created by hand?

PLEASE HELP! Any advice is Much Appreciated!

It looks like a fondant covered cake piped with royal icing

That is a crewel work cake. I think Martha Stewart has some info either on her site, or in her book.

Yes, I think Martha has that on her site if not, it was featured on something Ive seen before! But Im pretty sure they piped it. What I would do is either find a stencil that is similiar or try to copy the pattern and then use a pin to transfer the design onto the fondant. Then it will give you the design to pipe out without having to guess at it!

I've seen a cake just like this and it is the crewel-type design done in royal icing on fondant. The design is done making a series of (sort of) overlapping curved lines that mimic an embroidered or creweled line.
