Looks like 4 petalled flowers out of fondant, creating the circle type pattern with pearls at the center of each flower.

Try Global Sugar Arts-they have a lot of cutters.

Or else just take a circle cutter the size you want, cut out a circle, fold into quarters, use the same cutter to cut each quarter again to form the petal shape, then place four of them with the points together to form the shape on the cake.

I don't think you'll find a cutter. I've looked.

 

You might have to do what LizzieAylett says. Cut a circle, mark or fold into quarters, then use the same cutter to cut off the shape.

It looks like it's a quilting design thing.

There's a new silicone onlay for that now.

AI found that onlay and ordered it. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Holy Cow, I've never seen those before........that's a great invention! Kvand please post your experiences using them. Were they expensive?

imagenthatnj Posted 27 Jun 2013 , 3:14pm

AThey're about $29.

There are more styles inside each icon.

AOrdered 5 different ones and expressed them. Can't wait to try them. Dominic is going to be one rich man!

kvand Posted 27 Jun 2013 , 6:31pm

I ordered quite a few as well.  I hope they are as easy as they look!  Pretty darn excited.  They are supposed to arrive early next week.  eeek! I will post a review once I get to use them.

If the mold works as well as it looks like it will the time savings will be enough to cover the cost of the mold in just one cake.  after all, time is money :)

Rosie93095 Posted 27 Jun 2013 , 7:35pm

Can they be use on Buttercream?

imagenthatnj Posted 27 Jun 2013 , 7:42pm

Not sure. Probably not; I would use it to make an imprint on buttercream if I needed to. Dominic is here at CC, too. This is his profile. You could message him.

Thanks I will pm him..

soldiernurse Posted 27 Jun 2013 , 7:53pm

I dunno, I'm kinda skeptical...I watched the video but it was edited....one second it showed him starting to apply it but did not show it ACTUALLY coming out... and then it was done. Is it THAT easy to get out?? Did it break??icon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

kvand Posted 27 Jun 2013 , 7:56pm

AThe video shows you can use it to put fondant on a bc cake if that's what you mean. Just make sure the buttercream is really firm (cold) before applying.

imagenthatnj Posted 27 Jun 2013 , 8:04pm

Really kvand? I have to say I haven't watched the videos. No time yet. That would be great.

kaylawaylalayla Posted 27 Jun 2013 , 8:46pm

AThe link to the silicone onlay just looks like a diamond sgape cut out of a circle

AOr "concave diamond cutter"

Margaret393 Posted 27 Jun 2013 , 9:41pm

Looks similar to a pattern that I uploaded to CC in SKETCHES and PATTERNS ALBUM  last January.  I used a single petal cutter and arranged the cut-outs in sets of four.

I tried to reproduce this pattern in response to a query from 1HeartCupcakes. I used a single petal cutter and arranged the cutouts in sets of four - to copy the side design on a cake, from the photo uploaded by 1HeartCupcakes.  - This was done in a hurry, but hope that it is of help!!!

 

Hope this helps

The thing about molds like that is that you're either stuck with the one size or you will have to spend a lot if they offer multiple molds in various sizes. Using the circle cutter method allows you to size it right for the cake you're working on. One baker's standard height for a cake may not be another's.

 

The molds are time saving but they do have their cons.
