Use tip 5 and royal icing to pipe 1/2 in. deep drop strings around bottom borders between marks. Mark same size arching scallops on top borders and cover with tip 5 royal icing outlines; let dry.
Use Cake Dividing Set to mark divisions on cake sides where fondant flower plaques will go (6 on 6 in., 8 on 8 in., 10 on 10 in. cake). Roll out white fondant 1/8 in. thick.
