I did alot of ruffles on a Collete Peters design that I did for a bride, (in my pics), I just rolled out sheets of gumpaste with my pasta machine as thin as I could get it, and then gathered on one end, attached to cake with gum glue and propped with toothpicks till it was dry.

To find Nicholas Lodge's recipe for Tylos Gumpaste you can either go to his website or go to Edna DeLaCruz' website at:

DesignMeACake.com

Look under her recipes for Tylos Gumpaste. I just made several batches in the last two weeks for my daughter's wedding and grooms cake and I find it to be the best gumpaste to use for rolling exceptionally thin.

Also, just this morning I discovered something that you might be interested in - a Chocolate Roll Cutting Wheel from Squires Kitchen (UK). This would also work in white chocolate (or whatever color you want). I'm not sure how you can refill the chocolate wheel yourself though. Take a look at this link and check out the video demo on the same page - very interesting!

Julie Bashore did huge ruffles like that in a class I took recently - she used this jumbo frill cutter

http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=20030&name=Jumbo%20Frill%20or%20Ruffle%20Cutter%20-%20ATECO

and thinned and ruffled the edges with a bulbous tool just like a smaller version. Stunning......

I like that... it's 8 in.! that's awesome.... I'm gonna get it, but I need to try the other technique for now as I need ASAP.... I think the thin circles scrunched together might do it.... I just finished sanding my dummy cake, going to cover it now and then on to RUFFLES!!! hehehe

i think gum paste would be way to delicate, i used straight gum paste for my roses, and they chip and break, it seems to me it would be very hard to do without a lot of breakage on u-tube a lady was showing ruffeling sp, and she was using toothpicks to hold up the edges where you want them, i'd use 50/50 i i had the guts to make it, it's so beautiful

oh on the back of the can of gum tex, there is a recipe for gum paste, i think you need merange powder, you might want to check if you buy it, nothing worse than getting home and not having it.

I'm doing it with 50/50 for sure... I also think gumpaste would break easily... I started out with making circles and just like u guys told me... "bunch" them... kinda making a florette (sp?) and stick together... and I did use toothpicks to hold the shape I wanted... still on the first tier lol.. Philly had a very nice warm day today so I took my baby girl to the park...

It's soooo hard for me to stop "cakery" to do regular things lol... I am selfish cause I just want to work on my cakes and that's it! hehehe

i have no idea either, but its beautiful!!!

dalis4joe - sounds like you've got the technique down. If the 50/50 is still too brittle after it dries, I wonder if adding tylose directly to fondant would work. Just another suggestion if you need it later. Can't wait to see your cake.
