I apologize, I should have been more specific. I am wanting info on how to do the actual criss cross effect. How to make the cord, etc. Not the actual shape of the cake.

It looks like fondant to me. You can buy molds with that design and use a clay gun for the strings.

are you wanting the cord to be edible?
if not you could use leather lace

That looks so much like a real cord, my vote would be for sugar veil. It is totally flexible (and edible.)

I would use a clay gun too. Also called a clay extruder. You can find them in the craft store next to the clay supplies. It comes with discs that make different shapes, kind of like spritz cookies. icon_smile.gif

I was just going to comment on the construction...
I thing the corset looks like the sport ball pan. One on top of each other. Instead of frosting them both together to form a ball.

you can easily duplicate the look with fondant and a clay gun/extruder. sugar veil is a more expensive probability.

a clay gun is a simple tool that you place softened fondant into and push it out through a shaped tip that allows you to make ropes and things like that. they can get pricey if you want a really good one, but if it will be an occasional use, they can be bought really cheap. i bought a five dollar plastic one at michaels craft store in the polymer clay aisle. http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37&satitle=clay+extruder&category0=

I'm betting it's gumpaste.. fondant would break too much. You would use a clay gun like this one

and take the resulting strings and carefully weave it through the holes..

I think that the sugarveil would be flatter on one side.. it doesn't hold it's shape when piped onto something to dry out before you can handle it.. unless you piped it and hung it off of something, but I think it would break off before you got a long enough piece.

The lace just looks like fondant or gumpaste cut out with a lace cutter and then use a round tip to make the holes for the cording to go through.
