I'm in love with this cake design, but struggling to find an impression mat or stencil that looks like the bottom tier. I wonder if anyone will be able to help me figure it out. I tried looking under Fish Scale and Honeycomb impression mats but none of them look like this. Would appreciate any help, thank you in advance!

I think it is 100s of tiny ovals of fondant hand placed on rather than a stencile.  Good luck finding something close.

Just yesterday, I saw a cake with a couple of borders made like this. I guess it could be a mold, but I agree that it appears to be handmade from a million ovals.

I agree that it looks like individual ovals.  Seems like they tried to mimic the larger top border but in a smaller proportion.  But the ovals look like they have a slight texture so you could use an impression mat over a large piece of fondant first to get that texture and then cut out the ovals.

Yes freckles I noticed the texturing also but failed to mention it
