I am wanting to make a ballerina type cake with a tulle skirt. I would love for the tulle to be transparent, like a real tutu, but how do you do that? I thought about spun sugar...but don't know how it would look around the cake.
I've also thought to just have fondant with a tulle look, I could run a piece of tulle through the pasta machine with fondant or gumpaste, and then piece it together like a regular skirted cake. I just wish it could be transparent. Does anyone else have any ideas?

Well, sugarveil would work.

I have mixed reviews of sugarveil. There's a system for sale on Ebay and I posted the info over on the cake decorating forum. I have a system, don't use it, though.
