I have a cake order that wants the paisley design from their invitations on the sides and part of the top of a square cake. How would I transfer the design to the cake? The icing will be buttercream. The design is pretty detailed with the paisley shapes and some floral shapes.

I would make an RI stamp and use that. Make sure you give the RI enough time to dry.

How do you make a RI stamp? I understand the piping the RI, but what do you attach it to to stamp on the side?

I found out how to do it from another post. Rocketgirl899 posted a tutorial on how to do a RI stamp. It's great having such great folks on CC willing to share their techniques. Thanks again Rocketgirl899!

I love the paisley cake on the cover of the Country Kitchen Sweet Art catalogue, but I couldn't find paisley cutters anywhere in the catalogue. Can anyone else find them in there? I looked on the website, too, but couldn't find them. Guess I'll have to contact them and ask.

I just did some more researching and the paisley design on the cake (country kitchen art's catalog pic) is from a candy mold. Here's the link:

Thanks, xstitcher. Those are nice, but they're not the same shape as the paisley on the cover. The ones I like have a swirly curlique on the end.
Are you a cross-stitcher? Cross-stitchcing was an obsession of mine several years ago. Then quilting, stained glass, machine embroidery, mosaics............... Then cookie baking, then cakes....... 'Round and 'round I go!

Wow, xstitcher! You should be a detective! Thanks for finding that for me. I was barking up the wrong tree, looking for paisley cookie or fondant cutters.

Your welcome. Glad I could help and yes I used to cross stitch once upon a time. Couldn't imagine doing it now with my little ones getting all tangled up in the thread icon_lol.gif . Icing is way more fun.....
