Someone asked me to make them a wedding cake.... I have not done a lot of scroll work.. I am wondering if the cake they sent me is done with chocolate?? I have seen where you can print out templates of scroll work and then let them harden and put them on the cake.. Does this look like that??

Any tips for me to do this?

hard to see close up, can you send a link or make the picture bigger?

here is a bigger picture of what i think is a similar cake ... it's a design i've seen people post about before:

trishalynn0708, is this what they want?

perhaps piping it on with royal icing?

It could be a combination of Cricut-cut fondant and piping some dots.

That cake is almost identical, thank you!! I tried to make my picture bigger but it kept blurring...

You definitely could do this with modeling chocolate. Or fondant. Bronwen Webber does decos like this on cakes. She just freehands something like this. That is probably what i would do also. hth

I think I'd do it in royal icing because anything with oil--like chocolate--would likely bleed & stain the ribbon.
Another option would be fondant, although it would look slightly different.
