Need to make a wedding cake with some damask decorations. Is using a stencil the best way to apply a damask? Or are there any other ways to draw/pipe a damask onto fondant? The cake is round so I know if I use royal icing to pipe onto wax paper will not work when transferring onto cake. IS there any other easier way?

the one in my photos are done with an edible image. I covered the cake with fondant and spread a thin layer of pipng jelly on and stuck the image on, it was VERY fast and easy

I am not very experienced decorator, but I did a damask cake and used a stencil with royal icing and found it rather easy to do...

i've been researching damask as well for an upcoming wedding cake. i'm going to try cutting them out based on a shape cut out with my cricut. i found a damask font:

i'm going to make a stencil with these out of vinyl with my cricut and try to cut them out individually from modeling chocolate.

Chrisviz..Im tryon to avoid buying a stencil as they are quite expensive, but it looks as that is what im goign to have to do.

Metria, I got to excited to see your damas pattern but I wasnt able to view as I dont have an account. I have consider buying the cricut as well, but, uggh soo much $$...
I guess Im going to have to hand pipe it until I invest into a machine/stencil. I was just trying to se if anyone had any easier ideas on how to transfer or make a damask onto fondant cakes... :/

try here:

you can probably print this out and use the pin prick method to transfer the lines to your cake
