I was sent in a picture of this beautiful cake but I dont know if I should do it by hand or use cutter which I don't have.

The only difference is that I will be making only 1 tier.

What do you think?

I am open to suggestions!

It might be a good idea to use a stencil with buttercream...might be the easiest way!

I agree with baycheeks, a stencil is definitely the way I woud go.

Stephen Benison has a set of fondant cutters which are similar to this pattern. Here's a link to them: http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=22506

Sugardivine - there is instructional videos on the website listed above but basically u take a scraper and apply a thin layer of thinned buttercream or royal icing over the stencil and then peel it back off the cake.
