I want to do a Ukrainian pattern on the rim of a dinner plate (to actual scale) - pattern would be 1" - 1.5" wide approx.

It would look something like one of these:

Are there stencils? Choc transfers? Any other ways? I'm pretty good at painting on fondant, but I think this would be extremely challenging, since it has to be symmetrical and it's on the rim of a round object. Would appreciate advice.

TIA! icon_smile.gif

Your 1st like didn't work for me.
Yes, it does look challenging icon_sad.gif I would try using the pattern you posted, cut out and laid on a sample round, then fill in where you have gaps. That's about all I can think of. I was going to suggest royal icing then lift and place on plate but if you are able to pAint I would think that would be better.

Thanks so much for the reply, Kakeladi! I'm not sure what a 'sample round' is? Not aware of this technique? Could you please elaborate? Thanks so much! icon_smile.gif

I ended up using an edible image. I think it was the best way to go!
