Hi all... I need to pick your brains please...
Is this a mold? A cutter? It's sooo intricate and detailed, how in the world is it applied without falling apart?

It looks like it's either embossed or stenciled with the same color as the surface.

That was me you asked, lol. I put it on flickr so I could share it here since for some reason I can't attach pics anymore. icon_smile.gif Thanks for going to extra step for me!
But you all have to be right, it's got to be stenciling...

I have a stencil that looks just like that. Instead of spreading the royal icing over the stencil or putting color oover the stencil like you would normally, you roll the rolling pin over the stenicl laying on the fondant which causes it to emboss the design into the fondant.

So, you roll the rolling pin around the sides of the cake?
