I think this cake is done by using stencils? Am I correct? I attached a pic of the cake she wants. I have never done anything like this before and I'm not sure if I can even do it, but that's how you learn right? Is it easier than it looks? Could you give me instructions on how to do this? TIA

Yes that is done w/a stencil. Sorry, I haven't made one yet but I'm sure someone will jump on this post and give you some instructions.

lets start with good luck!!!! im sure in the middle of the night you will find a solution!! thats when it works best for me. but if anything worst comes to worst you can take the pattern and get it printed out at the local grocery store on an edible image sheet and then they will be perfect but im sure youll figure out the best way good luck

I believe on the home page there is a link that gives directions on stenciling. I have yet to try this technique though. I hope this helps. Oh, and I'm not sure if it is some "specific" type of stenciling tutorial but it's a video and it's right on the home page.

This cake is done by a stencil by Global Sugar Art. They advertise on here all the time. There is also a video you can watch from here under Articles Tab the under Cake Decorating Videos.

It is also on the home page right now for how to apply it.

Good luck. I've never tried it but it looks easy enough.

The videos in the articles section will explain it and show you how to do it. They show it done with both royal and buttercream.

I have done a similar cake using an edible image, its easier to do it with a square cake I suppose, but I had 5 sheets printed and this is the result. I was too scared to do black RI stensils, this was super easy. Just "glued it onto the fondant with some piping jelly

well if you want this done the right way, then do it the same way that cake on the photo was done.. by stencil. Martha Stewart had this on her book and it was done by stencil.
