I am making a wedding cake and the bride wants a black swirly design on the centre of the middle tier. I am thinking that gumpaste would be the best so I'm looking for a cutter or set of cutters that could create a focal point for the cake. Does anyone have any favorites that you could recommend? Thanks!

I think you can also use a stencil with royal icing that technique is so elegant and easy to do.

Thanks for your reply! You're right, I should look into stencils - it may be a good excuse to do some practicing! I have been looking at filigree cutters but so many of them are in the $30-60 range which eats into the profit too much.

I have used Stephen Benison cutters with success.

Definitely the most versatile scroll cutters because you can use one cutter, reverse it, and get a left & right scroll.

They're an investment, but infinitely useful.
