Does anyone know how the rice paper was cut?

This cake is wrapped in die cut rice paper & has over 100 handcrafted rice paper flowers.

From what I could gather from Google it seems that there's a die cut machine....I think there's a way to do it by hand but from what I read it takes patience

While there *may* be a die cutter/paper punch used for some parts of the flowers shown, a cardboard or plastic template would be my go-to for larger petals. MUCH faster and easier to adapt petal shapes to specific flowers. 

 

This is what I teach my students in wafer paper classes.....

icing images has a die cutter for cake use. They sell the colored icing sheets for it. I suppose you could use all sorts of papercrafting techniques with them and rice paper both.

I love how I posted this 2 hours 33 minutes ago, then get an "update" in my email that shows LisaBerczel's post from 3 hours 2 minutes ago.

"Die cut" refers to the rice paper pattern around several of the cake tiers, not the flowers, and both are 100% Martha Stewart craft paper punches.  I've seen both punches billion times at Michaels, but don't feel like looking for the exact patterns for you - there are way to many patterns at this point!  The art deco trim on tier 1 is a punch like this:

The double barrel trim tier was punched with an all over the page punch like this:

The flowers are hand-cut or punched with regular circle cutters.
