I think it looks like piped buttercream.

Hey folks, thanks for all the responses.

 

I contacted the original designers and the answer is… gumpaste strips rolled into a rosette. Pretty much what we've all thought. It's just executed beautifully.

 

Now to convince my bride that I am capable of pulling this off. Wish me luck.

Good thing. I took a quilling class at the cake cottage and  if anyone ever wanted a cake with that technique they would be paying some big bucks. It's a good thing I do this as a hobby, for now anyway.

Hi gmfcakes.  Did Susan Carberry teach the class at the Cake Cottage?  How was the class?  Susan is teaching a few classes in my area next weekend.  Would you recommend her classes?  Thanks.

This is not quilling as quilling is done with paper. This is fondant filigree (copies quilling which was created to replicate metal filigree). Quilling is a 15th century art form that has grown into a professionally recognized art. It has professional guilds and thousands of artists (quillests) around the world.

what would fondant quilling look like or are you saying quilling can't be done with anything other than paper

Love your new word!

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

The roses look pretty good that you did. It will look even better once you put the leaves and the scrolls on them to make them look like the ones on the picture. Let us know what your customer has to say!!!

and remnant's post leads me to another thought

 

it's like some peeps can't tell from a swatch or a yard how the dress will look or the wallpaper or the paint kwim?

 

so i hope the bride can visualize this for you ;)
