What is this cakeboard covered with? Folded Fabric?
TIA!

Is there a book to learn how to make these beautiful fluffy bows?

Looks like fondant, to me, textured with a textured rolling pin.
The flowers look stencilled to me. Thick icing for dimension... My guess icon_smile.gif

It's slightly gathered fabric - - attached underneath the cake.

The board may be covered in something like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Wilton-802-1991-Tuk-N-Ruffle-6-Foot/dp/B0000VZAEK

From what I understand of her blog post the flower design is made with a silicone mold that she made (or had made), the beads it seems are handmade and she points out that they are not all of the same size, the bow is gumpaste.

Apparently this cake won a bronze at this cake competition:

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

That board is most likely fondant, with indentions made with a frill stick. Real easy. Looks like this when it's on a cake: http://www.weddingbells.ca/blogs/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/wbapr11_caketress.jpg

I also think the board is fondant with a textured pin.

I'd say the flowers were a lace mould, possibly over piped.

I'm going to disagree with everyone and say it's WHITE CHOCOLATE!

If you look at these two cakes from CC member Denise, they look almost identical to your picture...

I had asked her a couple years ago how she made her boards, and this was her response...
"The cake board was covered in white chocolate - painted on with a Rubbermaid 2" paintbrush and when dry was painted with luster dust and Everclear. It makes a beautiful board and is pretty quick and easy."

Hope that helps! Plus it sounds a lot easier than the fondant!

That sounds easier than fondant? Rolling out a round of fondant, and dragging a stick across it? Huh.

I've done it with fondant. Very quick & easy.

Roll out the size needed, a bit thicker than normal, apply to board, frill/emboss, cut off the excess using a palette knife. Dust, airbrush, whatever. Done.

Wow, that's my cake icon_smile.gif

Yes, the board is covered with fondant.
Some times ago I made a tutorial for this...
http://tortentante.blogspot.com/2011/07/anleitung-ein-cakeboard-mit-fondant.html

On the right side of the blog under the peony picture is a translator icon_biggrin.gif

I made the bow freehand out of gumpaste without a book ...

pippilotta--Thank you for the tutorial. I was not able to find the translator, but your pictures gave all the information.

Although I could not understand German, I believe the tool is the Random Veining Tool by Holly Products.
