Hi,

How do I get Damask effect on the sides of the cake like this picture? I have the stencil but I'm afraid to mess it up. What do people use? Royal icing or those dusts?

AI believe that most people use royal. And practice.

Hmm okay.. and how do I stick the stencil onto the cake so that it doesnt move while applying the royal icing?

I do royal on fondant. i've heard of people using buttercream on buttercream (the cake being hard, perhaps an all -butter buttercream), but i haven't done it. 

 

I have had an assistant (read: husband) hold the stencil in place while I spread the royal, then peel the stencil off.  But I have also been told that you can wipe the back of the stencil with a bit of shorting to make it stick.
