I am making this cake in June and am trying to think of best way to do the couple, Shall I print it on paper and cut around it onto flower paste or is an icing sheet better? Or any other method or advice would be great thanks.

AHi. I've used this silhouette before. I just printed it on thick paper. I rolled out some gumpaste and let it firm up a bit, smeared a little shortening on the back of the silhouette to keep it in place and cut around it with an exacto knife. Take extra care around the feet so you don't pull the gumpaste when you cut. Then just neaten up any rough bits when you remove the paper.

Yes, print it on cardstock and then trace around it on firm/slightly dry fondant with a very sharp knife.
