horizontal strips of icing covering cake

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi guys 

 

I wonder if you can help me?  I have a bride wanting a cake with horizontal strips of icing (sort of uneven and a little jagged) totally covering her cake.  I have attached a picture of the effect she's after but her cake will have a different floral design.  

 

Any advice would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

Claire

very simple.  Just wrap strips of fondant.

Thanks Leah, sorry I should have been clearer, do you think the first tallest strip should go all the way to the base of the tier and then add shorter ones?  Or are they all say an inch deep and applied slightly overlapping?  Does that make more sense?

Hi, I made a cake similar to this recently.  I just overlapped the layers slightly, starting at the top and working down.  If you used your first suggested method you'd end up with a massively thick layer of fondant by the time you reached the bottom and it would be more pyramidal in shape.

 

Hope that's the info you were looking for!

That's great thanks Lizzie, I don't know why I've had such a mental block with this cake but feel a lot more confident now.  Thanks so much xxx
