I've been asked to do a wedding cake similar to the one pictured above.  I'm guessing that stencils would have been used on the first three tiers?  Would it be royal icing?  Buttercream?  

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated :-)

With a stencil you could use either royal or b'cream.

Thank you kakeladi.  Is there any benefit to using one over the other in your opinion?

I almost never used royal.  Most of my decorating was done with b'cream.  

I notice a 'flatness' to the design the puzzles me.  I'm thinking it might be royal on fondant by stencil OR it could be that the design was placed on the cake before the fondant is applied.  I've heard on here about someone doing something like that.  Don't know how it would actually be done.  2 of the tiers wouldn't be a problem I don't think but the center one would be work pressing the fondant between the closeness to bring out the design.

I just found a tutorial by Zoes Fancy Cakes that answers my question.  Here is the link if you are interested:

Thank you for your feedback :-)
