I am going to do a 5 tier wedding cake next month who wants a damask print. Just need thoughts/suggestions -- it will be round tiers with buttercream (white) with black buttercream stencilling for the damask. I have read up on the stencilling side of things and the few damask posts on this site but didn't know of anyone's previous learning experience with this? i would be more calm if it is royal icing with fondant but she doesn't want fondant. Thank you!!! (other main concern is the "bleeding" tendency of black frosting on white)

I have done black buttercream stencil on a white cake and it did not bleed. Here is the cake: http://family.webshots.com/photo/2455567600048684272ACOJWT

When stenciling around a round buttercream cake, I employ the help of my DH to help hold the stencil in place. HTH a little bit.

I just stenciled for the first time on buttercream last week. It was much easier than I thought it would be. In fact, I prefer using buttercream to stencil versus royal icing, now that I've had the chance to stencil with it. I made sure to chill the tiers very cold before I stenciled. Then I would put them back in the fridge while I worked on another tier, then bring out the rest of the tiers and so on and so forth.
