I don't think that's a tip, I believe those are cut out of fondant or gumpaste. Too big for tappits to cricut cake probably.

It looks piped, or fondant with overpiping to me, as some parts of the writing are up higher than others. I understand you may achieve that with fondant alone, but I suspect its a talented piper!

Have you tried contacting the bakery to ask them?

Round tip. They vary the pressure/speed of moving the tip so the letters are thicker and thinner. Kind of a cool technique, they purposely vary the thickness rather than trying to keep them perfectly the same. Lots of examples on their website.

I'm thinking it's piped as well. Maybe one of those tips that looks like a rose tip, but all one width (like a thick line...sorry I'm not familiar on what the different tips are called!!) and piped in calligraphy style.

It looks like fondant to me just by virtue of the size and intricacy of the lettering.

I'm very curious now!

I think it's piped as well. Someone who is very talented. If you look at the letters, you can see inconsistency hence the giveaway of piping!
