Ruffle cake. How do I do this?!?!?!?!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if anyone has suggestions on how to make the ruffles for this cake. And also how to make them stay on the cake? I am gonna attempt this for my daughters 15th next week! Thank you!

Hi there! I don't know how these ruffles were done, but to me it looks like circle fondant ruffled at the edges, pinched together at the center and maybe attached with toothpicks. At least this is who I would try to make them, you should do a trial and see if this works. Good luck!!

What she said ^^^^^^

You could send a pm to the baker who made that one and ask politely.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Hi, I love the ruffle look too! Another baker posted a wonderful picture and she included some instructions in the comment area icon_biggrin.gif

All you do is cut out a bunch of fondant/gumpaste circles and pinch in the middle to get the ruffle look.

A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.

Thank you everyone! Wendyladyof3, that is the exact cake that made me want to try this! I did comment on the thread because I just dont see how the ruffles stayed without using toothpicks or something so I was hoping for some sort of technique or helpful hint. I'll just have to give it a go myself. I'll post pics if it works out icon_smile.gif

What a coincidence! I really liked that cake too and added it to my favorites right away! I guess if she rolled the fondant really thin it would 'lighten' it up..I haven't worked with italian BC, but maybe frosting with a ganache might hold it (cause it can dry harder??) I'm not too savvy with cake making quite yet lol But I LOVED that cake icon_wink.gif

I did a cake similar to both once...
I covered it in a very thin layer of fondant over the buttercream... wasn't too concerned with smoothness or small rips since no one would see it...
then I attched the ruffles with a bit of melted candy melt... I would imagine you could use gum glue or melted chocolate as well... it was just what I had on hand...

@AAtKT I think I will try the melted candy melts. I have gum glue but your way sounds like it'll hold better. Thanks for your idea. I really was concerned about the ruffles not holding on to the BC icing properly. I Hope it works! I'm doin it on Sunday. Thanks!!!

If you build them up from the bottom to the top, they'll suppport each other.
