I have been asked to make this cake in White and Corral, I need some advice on how the paisleys were done, do you think they are hand drawn or is there a pattern somewhere I can get to use on this cake?  Thanks in Advance!  Oh and I am afraid the coral will not stand out on this cake like it does in black and white, what are you're thoughts!




Also What would you charge for the cake?  I am assuming it is double layers on each tier?  Thanks again you gals/guys Rock!

ALooks like a combo of damask & paisley cutters.

What is your price per serving? Mine is $4.50. I charge an additional $1.50 for fondant.

Thanks for the help, I find myself stressing bad over this cake...the cutters I have found that would work (thanks for the link) are way more expensive than I can do.... This is a friends daughter and I've already priced this cake at $200.00 but now I'm afraid I cannot replicate it for that cost.


Do any of you have any suggestions I could tell her, maybe pick a 2nd or 3rd cake she likes and go from there and hope there is one I can swing more easily?  I'm really stressed out, not only for this wedding cake coming up at the end of the month, but I'm doing another wedding cake for this weekend!  Talk about over loaded brain..

AI checked out the link and there was a set of three scrolls for 13.99 , that seems reasonable to me. Still plenty of room for some profit also since its for a friends daughter

RJHRN, Which ones were you looking at could you post the direct link for me to look at?  This cake will be done with buttercream, not fondant.  I will use the cutters basically as an outline to pipe the outlines and fill.  Thank you,

AI used the link from the previous post. About half way down in the middle is a set of three metal cutters. When tap on the picture it opens to the site that they can be bought from

AI also forgot to say that your cakes colors will work . The beauty is the contrast in light and darks. Good Luck !
