I'd love to know how you think they may have done all of the silhouettes on this cake! I looked for similar cricut designs, thinking I could cut it out that way for the most part, but I didn't find anything even remotely similar on the website. What do you think?

AMy guess would be they used a machine of that kind. I GUESS you coukd use an exacto knife and a paper template on top of black gumpaste? I'm not sure how precise that would be though.

When I did this I used my silhouette cameo machine.

I think some parts must be done by an exacto or a cutting knife, and some, more detailed, must be done with an stencil and buttercream or royal Icing....

I'm pretty sure that cake appeared on a UK contest show where 3 bakers competed for a contract. This was for a pagan wedding or "handfasting". It was the winning cake and templates were used.

I think you could use patchwork cutters, they also emboss and I don't see any detail in the picture but there's an idea
