This is not my cake and not my picture. I have a Bride that has her heart set on the design on this cake. I did an Internet search and it is only linked once on Pinterest and no link to the designer. I have no clue how to start on this design. I need to figure out what you would call this type of design and make a sketch to work from. Any suggestions?

i would call it intense overlapping scrolls
it's a bit of layer upon layer y'know
I agree it is piped flourishes. Use small round tips like 2 and 3, maybe 4. You might be able to find a stencil w/similar flourishes to help you get started, then it's just piping over them in the different colors.
Thank you, I appreciate the help:)
What they said. If you're not used to scrollwork, blow up the photo, put a piece of parchment paper on top and trace the scrolls in pencil. Practice doing the scrolls on the paper. You could even put the tracing paper on a notebook that is stood on edge so you could get the feel of doing the scrolls on a vertically oriented surface. Good luck! Great design.
