I have an order to make a birthday cake for a 2 yr old similar to the pic attached. I was wondering how i can do the scalloped / curve design on the pink fondant? are there cutters available or this needs to be done by hand?
not done this before and i definitely dont want it looking messy! Looking for some great advice/suggestions! thanks in advance.

I would cut the fondant to the length and width needed, then make the scallops with a large circle cutter. Roll it up and then unroll as you apply it to the cake, to keep it from stretching out of shape.

a lot of people use a piece of paper fold it and cut the edges and use as a pattern to follow

That is too sweet! I have a cutter that does that pattern... but you can do it like the others above posted for sure. Post pics.... would love to see your version!
