For the circle on the edge, I would use a cake board that's the size of the cake and with a sharp knife or cutting wheel cut the fondant.  Then with a cake board that is about four inches smalle, I would cut another circle within your cutout.  The rest I would look for a template that I can print out and use as a guide to cut my fondant.
