Hi everyone. I've seen a few different cakes that I really like and I want to know how to do this: the cakes looked like they are striped (fondant), but the stripes aren't placed on top of the fondant where you can see the fondant underneath. It looks like the different colored fondant stripes are each cut so that they touch and cover the entire cake. Then over the top they lay a different color of fondant and it hangs over the side and is scalloped. So it kind of looks like the fondant is "dripping" over the sides.

I would like to know if you cover the cake in fondant and then put the stripes over that? or how this is done? and then, how do you keep the fondant that is over the top of the stripes, smooth, so that you don't see the indents of the stripes.

I hope that this makes sense, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. SARAH

I'm not sure which cake you are referring to, but this one is butted, not overlapped.
This one is a chocolate wrap. -
If you could point us to a picture, someone could probably tell you exactly how to make it...

I don't want to make a cake just like this, but I want to know how to do stripes around the cake like this (except that I want to do different colors and widths) and then put the "scalloped" part over the top. Anyone? I need some advice.

I am loving that cake but onfortunatley I can't make out the details. It's really, really light on my monitor and the whole thing looks practicaly white.

I would also love to know how they do the striped cake with the scalloped overhang and nothing looks stacked or 3D. It's all very smooth...... sorry I wasn't more help.

I think that particular photo looks like it's done with a chocolate transfer not fondant!

If you click on the candyland cake, it gives you a close up and you should be able to see the details. I'll try to email the maker, maybe she can help me.

I adjusted the contrast on that cake to help see the details. It drives me mad, I recognize it but can't remember where I saw it.

edited to add: Thank you for the name, wgoat5. This cake was made by adven68.

Is this what you mean? This really shows a great striped effect. This cake was done by Nati...

I don't know how she did the stripes, but they look perfect!

like these!! You just put melted choc. on the back and wrap it around the cake, let it set up and peel off the acetate!

I'm wondering how Nati did that brown cake. It's beautiful!
