Does anyone know where I can find some brush embroidery patterns? I need to do a 3 tier wedding cake and need some ideas for florals and scrolls.
Thanks in advance,

To do brush embroidery, you need some simple line drawings for patterns. I suggest you google "line drawings", "flower outline images" or simply "outline images". Children's coloring books have simple line drawings and so do internet coloring pages. Hope you find something you like!
For florals and scrolls, I lightly impress my fresh fondant with a cookie cutter in my desired shape. Then I start the outline of Royal there. It's a nice way to get a base shape to work from, and I have most of my floral cutters in different sizes so I can easily vary the look. This is just what I do, and I know there are other methods. Good luck!
There are some lovely patterns in Toba Garrett's book, "The Well Decorated Cake."
