Has anyone ever heard of or seen one of these? Better yet, have a picture of one?

The one only described to me was a stacked pound cake with fabric draped around each level...possibly decorated with fresh flowers?

I can't picture it. Anyone know anything about this sort of thing? Sounds very interesting for someone who doesn't like icing!

Sure! Just google or search on here, fondant drape.

Actually, the cake I'm talking about does not have fondant but actual cloth fabric.

Any clues?

They really do look real. But this was an entire wedding cake with not a lick of icing or fondant. Just fabric and real flowers. I'm wondering how this is done and how it really looks. Thanks for the pictures though!

Ziggy...... I've made the "towel" cakes and diaper cakes, and for a couple of weddings, I made the card box totally covered in satin and flowers the same as that were in the brides maids bouquets.....It looked like the wedding cake........ would it be something like that ?

The description I was given was that it was a stacked poundcake
that simply had fabric draped over it to appear somewhat like a traditional wedding cake.

Maybe this is a unique thing.

I think Wilton did something like that with tulle. I believe it was ice in fondant then wrapped in the fabric. I thought it looked kind of weird pretty... if that makes any sense at all! lol

Well darn. It may have been unique.

If you locate a picture, please be sure to post it for us.

Well ya know.. it kinda makes sense though.. someone that doesn't want to have frosting or fondant on a cake.... maybe serving poundcake with strawberries and whipped cream on the side? icon_smile.gif Sounds actually nice icon_smile.gif to me

I have pictures of "naked cakes", but they have whipped cream and sometimes berries between the layers. None with any draping though.

Ya'll have me sooo curious about this! If there is zero icing, not even a "protective fondant wrap," am dying to know how they would keep all of the fabric's lint off of the cake? (I'm serious! Inquiring minds want to know.)

Not only keep lint off but keep it from drying out. They could brush w/ a simple syrup, but then you'd have fuzzies for sure.

and a pair of scissors to cut the cake. icon_biggrin.gif

There are fabrics out there that are lint free icon_biggrin.gif

And pound cake has a nice "crust"

as long as they aren't cut and nice and fresh .. I really don't see a issue

I know. Me either, which is why I thought someone here would have a picture.

TWO people told me they were at a wedding with such a cake, so there is a picture, somewhere!

I still don't have a picture for you. icon_sad.gif

But I have a bit more of a description.

Stacked pound cakes.

White fabric WRAPPED around each layer.


Can you picture it?
