Any idea what mold or cutter was used. I am having a hard time finding anything that resembles it at all. It doesn't' need to be exact so if you have any ideas I would love to hear them!

I'm going to guess that it is a lace press of some type and they have just used half of the design. That's if you are talking about the leaf design. I think I saw someone suggest using those covers they have on flouescent light panels for the gird design, or you might google grid design fondant rolling pins and see what pops up. Jennifer Dontz has some beautiful lace presses.

It says that Ron-Ben Isreal created silicone molds from appliques and then sugar paste was pressed into the molds. There are 25 shapes made and then layered on top of each other.

Sorry, I think I was looking at the wrong cake. I think you are talking about slide #13 the Ironstone Wedding Cake. If so, I really am not to sure. It looks like it could be just piped with some gumpaste leaves attached at the corners and some type of gumpaste "feet" that make it look as though it is lifted from the cake below. I would also imagine the teapot topper is made from gumpaste.

It states in the description:

The leaves (fondant formed in a silicone mold) contrast with the textured bands (made by pressing fondant onto a grid) wrapping the tiers.

Any generic leaf mold would give the same effect, and I might try a plastic canvas for the grid impression (similar to needlepoint type canvas)

Good luck with it~!

Thanks for the replies. I have already found something for the grid pattern but thanks. I was hoping someone had maybe seen a silicone mold that looked similar. So far I can't find one. I'm guessing he made it himself(he usually does) but it seems like I should be able to find one some where that is similar! Oh well.

Have a look at Elegant Lace Mold's website, they may have something similar. They make superb molds.

Is it the Matelasse Wedding Cake?

As far as the side pattern is....the cake is covered first in fondant then a strip of fondant has been cut and textured and wrapped around the sides...though I am not sure what he used, a good approximation can be achieved by pressing a flourescent light fixture cover into the fondant.

The leaf motif should be avaialble, or something very similar, from any silicone mold supplier.

I had already decided to use the fluorescent light sheet. It is the leaf silicone mold. I thought it would be easy to find something similar but I have gone to every supplier I know of and haven't found anything close to the same thing.
Thanks everyone for all the tips though!

First Impression has some scroll molds that would allow you to achieve a similar look.
