Hi, it looks to me like , she just cut strips of fondant,(thin) folded it in half. and gathered it and glued to sides of cake. It wasn,t ruffled with a tool, it is just gathered. That is what i see , when i enlarge it. hth someone else might have a different view.
I agree, strips bunched up together and glued to the cake with either water or a dab of royal or better yet, white chocolate for glue. What a gorgeous cake and what a ton of work. Thanks for sharing, so glad I saw it.
Who is the Michelle that created this beautiful cake? I searched the memberlist here on CC but there were no pics for Michelle (: I want to know how the bottom layer was made - it looks like a cutaway or are those grey dots of icing or fondant on the lace effect? Any ideas? Merry Christmas everyone!
