AI was wondering if anyone could please suggest what can be used to achieve the scalloped design going around the cake tiers in these pics, if I don't have the specific cutter?....thank you!

This is probably not the same, but it is similar:

If you're going for the rope/string scallops between the bouys(sp?) it's easy to take two thin ropes of fondant and twist them together.
If you mean the lifesaver/round things w/red on them again it's very easy to use two glasses of different sizes or depending on how big you need them use a *large* tip and small one to cut the round shapes.

No need for special tools you might only use once or twice :)

Thank you!!! The frill cutters is probably what I'd need. Found a Wilton mold as well that has a scallop design... wilton is coming out with some pretty neat molds!
