We are trying to achieve a look similar to the one below. Mainly, the chunky looking fondant scrollwork. It looks like it may have come from a silicone mold of some sort, but I have searched multiple pages from a couple of cake supply stores and am not seeing anything close. Does anyone know how to achieve this look? I have a Cricut machine that can do something similar, but you can't do anything with variated depth.

This is the black and white "Bold Lace" cake from Real Simple. Many thanks! icon_smile.gif

There are several cakes on here that are just like this cake. Maybe, p/m that person and ask. People are ususally really nice . I too think it is all piped and no molds. hth

The bold scrollwork bits are fondant rolled into sausages then shaped to get the look. The lace bits are piped RI.

I have done a cake similar to this and I used fondant shaped to how I wanted then placed on the cake using some royal icing as glue then when hardened off a bit I piped the detail in between some free hand and some using a template I made on tracing paper and had already scribed onto the cake before adding the fondant scrolls. Have fun with it x

Just wanted to post a big thank you to everyone that responded! I had a feeling it was hand shaped, was hoping to find a time saver, but there are NO shortcuts in "good caking" thumbs_up.gif Thanks again for your help, I will post pictures of the end result.
