I am in a hurry to find a stencil set for a 3 tier cake. I've searched online and the ones I found are SO expensive. Does anyone know of a cheaper place to order cake stencils? Any other ideas for getting that stenciled look on th sides of a cake? Thanks.

I haven't bought one yet, but I have read online to use wall stencils, instead. I googled damask border stencil, and here are some that I found:

The problem with those is the size - the one posted above is 8x16 - too big for a cake, IMO.

One alternative is that you can cut one - do you know anyone who has a cricut? You can use that to cut one.

You can make a copy of your image and laminate it, then cut out the details with Xacto knife. Hth

I bought the set from Bargain Stencils (the same company as Designer Stencils). The only difference is the thickness and color of the stencil. Much much cheaper and seems to works just as well (just be gentle). HTH.
