10" cake covered in marbled fondant, gumpaste rings, letter cutters. Cricut Cutter & gumpaste, Sonic image.
What was your inspiration?

If you dont have the ability to design your cutouts then see if Cricut Cutter cartridges have what you need - a lot of them will use the same piece-work technique that I use. A must is a certain gumpaste recipe for the Cutter (at least in my opinion)!!
