I wish I knew who made this cake to give them credit, but I don't. I have seen many cakes like this and would like to attempt one. How are the appliques done? Sorry for the file attachment - I couldn't figure out how to attach the photo.
AI believe that is Royal icing stenciled over fondant. You use a medium-thick consistency RI and spread it over the stencil with a spatula.
I was hoping it was something easier - lol! I thought maybe it was done with a Cricut and just stuck on.
AYep, it's an intricate damask stencil.
