Using Cake Stencils Or Impression Mats For Scrollwork?

I am doing 2 wedding cakes in August both of which have heavy scrollwork....I see beautiful scrollwork on lots of wedding cakes...The kind that is ivory scrolls on ivory frosting. This scrollwork is pretty structured, not random, so I am assuming that a Stencil or impression mat is being used...

So two questions...If the stencil is being used, how are they getting the pattern transferred? I know you let the BC crust over, then I assume you use piping gel and trowel it over the stencil and carefully remove...Will the piping gel leave enough of the image for me to pipe over? Is there some other way to do this?or......

Should I just buy the impression mats? Do they work well?
