I asked the same question recently, and got a very helpful response from someone. She posted these links for me:

Here are just some threads from CC that will help with stenciling on fondant covered cakes:

Here's a tutorial:

I ended up using a stencil but instead of smearing it across like it shows in the video, I actually painted the RI in with a paintbrush. I just didn't want to risk smudging the black RI on the white fondant. It came out pretty well, especially for a first-timer (I think!).

Hope that helps!
