... But I LUV it!!! Made it for the bridal show this weekend and I wanted something different. Found the fringe stuff in the bead dept at Walmart and knew it would make a great cake! Colors are in the "neon" family of yellows, greens and fuschia. It looked so 60's to me!!

Hubby saw it and said that I really went outside my realm on this one ... and he meant it as a good thing. People at the show (small turnout that it was) really luv'd it..... I got some great feedback on this cake.

I obviously don't have a collection of fondant cutter stuff, so to make the circles I used the open end of my big 2B tip, then the open end of a regular tip for the mid size circles, and the smallest ones are made with the #12 (I think) tip.

The cake is sitting on my shortest acrylic stand (what the orange M&M cake is sitting on in this pic: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=415413) and I wrapped tulle around the base, which gives it a "sitting on a cloud" look. The base cake has to be elevated so the fringe will dangle.

Dare I say how much fun I had matching the fondant color with the fuschia ribbon, and cutting out the shapes and attaching them? icon_redface.gif

A shot of the whole table at the show is in my pics.

I agree, from your website, not a Debi cake, but great as always. You did a great job with the colors.

Well I have to say this is the first time I've considered 'not very Debi-ish' to be a good thing!! This is SO cool! But I must know... where did you get that awesome separator?? WILD!

never would have pegged it for being your cake, but it totally rocks, which means I wasn't surprised to know it was yours.......well, not toooooo much anyhow LOL It's looks gorgeous! I love all the different fringes they have in there..Oh and a question on it too. Where did you get that cool spiral stand and how is it sitting on the next cake?? Like if you used it for a real cake how would you support it? would you put a plate on top of the cake and ice over it or what?? Just curious! I really love the spiral stand on there like that and the fact that you found orchids the EXACT shade of fuscia you needed! Amazing!

Ditto....I love it. I also want to know where you got that separator.

LOL, welcome to the world of fondant circles. Too cute!

The spiral separator is really a fruit stand! icon_surprised.gif Turn it upside down and it holds fruit.

Before making this, I really thought about "how would I use this on a real cake?" I would dowel the cake, of course, and lay a cardboard circle (the full size of the cake) on top of the iced cake ... then ice over the cardboard so it looks invisible ... as part of the cake. I'd use a full size circle so there would be no bump in the middle of the cake.

And good thing I thought this out ahead of time ... because I actually got that question today at the show!! icon_biggrin.gif

Cakepro, I'm making my list of what colors of fondant I want to keep on hand now! Hard to believe, huh? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Fondant is just play-dough you can eat! Now that you've crossed over to the dark side, you might never go back to all BC. icon_wink.gif

Fondant is definitely fun.

The fruit stand you used on your cake, my question is where would I find one?

I haven't seen anything like that. The way you used it on your cake as a divider was a great idea.

Nice job, Debi! It is so cute!

I love finding "stuff" and building a cake around it.

I have 2 of these that I picked up in a Pottery Barn or Flower Factory type of place .... a "kitchen knick-knack" store. I use them sometimes in my catering ... stuff a colored napkin inside it, then set the bowl of dip in it for the veggies.
