I want to do a damask print on fondant and I dont particularly want to buy a $65 stencil for it. I would like to find a cutter set for it. Any ideas??

Thanks, that was very helpful. I tried searching the site before asking but got nothing. Anyway, I guess I can't be lazy with such a complicated patten,huh. icon_smile.gif

Yeh, search hasn't been doing me much good either. It only shows like, 5 related posts.

I'm going to have to eventually break down and buy a stencil or the cutters maybe. I free-hand cut some designs for a tier on a display cake recently, and I don't want to do that again icon_smile.gif

You can also trace some damask shapes out of royal icing or chocolate, then once they harden apply them to the cake. Just as long as they're not so large that they won't fit the curve of the cake. of course, you could trace them on a curved dummy or something if you wanted large ones icon_smile.gif

As some other CCer pointed out a few weeks ago, a very productive way to search is to go straight to Google, click on Advanced Search, type in your search criteria, then at the bottom you'll see a place to "search within a site or domain". Type in You'll get much better results, and you can keep going back to the resulting hits instead of retyping the same search over and over again. Try it!
