I have a wedding cake coming up that the bride wants the cake design I've attached. It's a mix between a damask and a very pretty lace pattern and I'm not very comfortable doing it all by hand, so I'm looking for some help on how to make this possible. I've looked into Designer Stencils, several impression mat websites, and cutter without any luck. I seem to remember a vendor at ICES convention one year having black plastic cutters that left impressions that could be piped over but can't seem to find anything that resembles what I need, just found Broderie Anglaise Cutters that are patchwork. Can anyone help me out with this?

Sorry, the example pic is free-hand piping.

that heart shape is the Wilton imprinter. Then added embellishments.

I'm not so sure about the Wilton impression set because the hearts are different sizes. That's all hand piping, and it's what separates the Elisa Strausses from the cakewreckers. It's all practice and patience. Beautiful cake though. Good luck.
