I added the picture of the cake with the flower lacing to my pics, if you wanna look at them to see if you know how that'd be great.

it looks like piping to me, use a plain #2, maybe even a #1 depending on how fine she wants the embroidery (for the stems) ive used a petal tip for the leaves, you just have to practice with the pressure and angle. if you had a more close up pic i might be able to tell a little more, but i HTH. if you have time before the wedding, a book that i think would help you is "the international school of sugarcraft, book 2, it shows you how to do it and has templates,actually all 3 in the series are great to have.good luck thumbs_up.gif

I'm with Jenlane. It definitely looks like piping to me. Could be RI or BC.

It might help you out if you copy the pic to Word or something similar and enlarge it to get a better view.

It could also be stenciling done in royal.

One more idea is the leaves could be very thin fondant icon_smile.gif
