I love the gold pattern on this cake. Anyone know how the design is accomplished?

Very pretty, the flowers are Japanese chrysanthemums. They look almost like they used a stencil or maybe made their own. I say that because it looks slightly raised. The dark fondant could have been airbrushed. The edible beading looks like they placed each one on by hand.

 

I don't know but still, it's a  stunning cake!

It does look sort of raised, I wonder if they used a stencil too!

I'll look around and see what I can come up with :wink:

I would guess a stencil. The flower in the middle of the bottom tier and the one that "bridges" the top and middle tier are identical as far as I can see, so I would think you'd have to use a stencil. And I think it looks a little raised, too, so probably something thicker than just a gold airbrush, maybe royal icing with the gold painted over? Whatever it is, the work is meticulous and the gold against that midnight blue is a stunning effect. Gorgeous!

I went to their facebook page and it had the information on the dusts.  Also noticed that they had that site listed for other stencils and decided to check if that one was from there also.  I'm a good detective. lol  Either that or I have to much time on my hands.
