Pretty cake! You could try PMing Shirley, but i recall reading that she left CC earlier this week.

You could make strips of fondant and ruffle them, placing them all over the top of the cake.

Don't read all of it. It isn't very nice and her feelings were very hurt. She seems like a really nice person and very very helpful. I never actually talked to her myself, I just started posting a couple of months ago, but I hope she'll come back.

Oh, wow! i am speechless. I had only read to pg. 3 earlier this week.

Back to buttercreamkisses' question - I forgot i had made fondant tissue a few years back - Try to roll it on the thin side - I had a problem with it holding its shape b/c I rolled it kind of thick for a baptism cake. When you ruffle it, if you pinch it in a little on the bottom, it will help hold the shape also.

Shirley has a special machine that creates those ruffles. Needs special round blocks of chocolate.

Yes, i think she uses a girolle for chocolate, but in the description of this cake, it says fondant ruffles...
