Hello ccers
I was wondering if anyone knew how to achieve this design. It looks a little messy but I think I can look good with enough effort icon_smile.gif

TIA

On the road to becoming a great Baker :)

I've done something like that and the way I did it was to cover the whole tier in the bottom color (in my case, it was blue) and then cover over the top of it with the white. Then, I just used cutters in the shapes that I needed and gently pushed it into the top layer and tried to be careful not to cut into the bottom tier. For me, I realized the key was to do thicker layers of fondant so that you can feel when you're through it. I don't know if that makes sense. Haha. I hope that helps :) Good luck!

I did one like that for a wedding  and I used the white fondant underneath and brown on top. When I covered with the second layer I tried not to put the sugar syrup under where I would be cutting out. Once I had done the cut out I carefully placed the glue under the brown. This way you dont have brown marks on the white. There was an art to it but I am pleased with the finished cake. Hope you understand

I have also done this. On top of the bottom layer of fondant I lightly rubbed shortening so the top layer of 

 

fondant would adhere.  I also used cutters  and an exacto knife to do some freehand cutting.
