Just wanted some opinions on the best way to do a celtic knot design all the way around a wedding cake tier. The wedding cake will be a taupe color fondant with an off white celtic design. I originally had thought about stenciling the design all the way around each tier. But, I'm wondering if it might look better with a fondant cut out design. I do have my cricut (but no celtic cartridge or computer program to download). Wondering if I should invest in the program to download and cut it out. ~Or~ do you think the stenciling would look better? Or is there cutters that you have seen in the design that would work? I'm going to get busy looking on the internet...but, was hoping for opinions.
I've got a bit of time to figure it out...not due until December. But, I'm looking ahead in case I need to order anything.
Thanks!

adding: Or, maybe I could use a scrapbook stamp?

On a cake that I made with a celtic love knot, I used flexible royal icing to make the knot. The day before I need it, I printed out my design, placed it under some wax paper, and piped on the flexible royal icing (its The Baker's Kitchen gumpaste mixed that can be made into flexible royal icing). It works great!

You could emboss, or cut out and then stick on gumpaste/fondant celtic knot designs using the Patchwork Cutters Celtic design packet. I have used them and like them a lot!

I used Sure Cuts Alot to make my own pattern that went the whole way around the cake and then cut it with cricut. The picture is in my photos.

Jen, if it is not too much that I am asking for do you mind sharing the mold with us too? icon_smile.gif
