I love the look of the bottom tier of this cake.  can someone tell me what it is called and/or tell me how its done, share a video tutorial or anything?!?

Looks like 4 petalled flowers out of fondant, creating the circle type pattern with pearls at the center of each flower.

Or else just take a circle cutter the size you want, cut out a circle, fold into quarters, use the same cutter to cut each quarter again to form the petal shape, then place four of them with the points together to form the shape on the cake.

I don't think you'll find a cutter. I've looked.

 

You might have to do what LizzieAylett says. Cut a circle, mark or fold into quarters, then use the same cutter to cut off the shape.

There's a new silicone onlay for that now.
