sixinarow wow, they're really inspirational! I hope that mine is going to look like the one on the bottom right. Which fondant did you use? I'm in the uk so only limited choice! Have been using satin ice in the gumpaste but wilton in fondant which I didn't like working with, may try using satin ice in the fondant though. Also did you start from the top down?

I'm also in the UK, and you can get pre-coloured ivory fondant from Hobbycraft, or colour white fondant yourself.  Hobbycraft stock Renshaw's, which is fine.  I've also used Squire's Kitchen that I bought from my local cake shop and it was really lovely to work with.  I think you can buy their's online too.

 

I used Renshaw's white for this cake:

I had no problems with it at all.  I rolled out six strips at a time, and by the time I'd finished ruffling the last one, the first one was set enough to apply without difficulty.  I also used their ivory fondant coloured for this cake:

My first wedding cake was also ivory ruffles. I made white chocolate MMF, you already have that "ivory" color when using white choc. I then added just a bit of ivory color to it.  I used just sWedding cake I did for my cousin's niece. The topper isn't on yet.traight fondant for the ruffles after covering the cake in the fondant.

I usually make my own using a variation of MFF but any fondant will work. As othersI have mentioned, cut and ruffle several at a time. But if it's stiff fondant like the wilton, apply the strips right after you ruffle it so it doesn't crack when you apply. Work from top to bottom, it's easy to break the ruffles after they're dry when you move it to stack so be gentle. I love ruffles- have fun!

Actually, the large photo is helpful in that it offers a close up of how it is done.  Thank you.
