i've seen on here that you can take a piece of paper and fold, then cut the edges that you like

Are you talking about how the fondant looks two toned? White on the bottom and then pink on the top?

To me it looks like the cake was iced in BC, then the pink fondant was cut to form the scalloped edges and laid on top. Then fondant was used for the dots and stripes.

ninatat do you remember where you saw that?
I want to know how to do the pink part on the cake. How to measure and cut the fondant to lay it on top.

I saw on here that you use the pan that you backed the cake in as a template and cut a large wavy line round larger than the pan and then lay that on top of the already iced tier. then you could use an extruder to make the string/piping around the edge. Not tried it myself yet so good luck its a gorgeous cake

What I would do is: you roll out fondant and use a cake pan approx. 1-2in' larger that the actually cake used. Then use a round cutter to make the scallops. Put the fondant on the cake and then trace it with another piece of traced to size fondant
