You can copy and paste from your gallery but not from your pictures.

You have to post it in the gallery first, which is unfortunate since it's not your cake, but that's the only way. Or copy and paste a link to the internet page where you've seen it.

Here is a good tutorial.

 They used cookies but I think you can still see how it's done:

It looks to me like it's scrollwork piped in royal icing, left to dry and then painted.  Nicholas Lodge has a technique that is suppose to save you a step when having to work with metallic scrollwork.  I've not tried it but I believe he mixes some gold dust with powdered sugar..then adds enough vodka to make a paste ..and then adds some clear piping gel until you get to a piping consistency. Sorry I don't have the exact measurements on hand but I bet if you googled it you'd find it. HTH
