I have been asked to make a wedding shower cake. The hostess is leaning toward the wedding dress cake. I have looked at a lot of pictures in the gallery. The dresses are pleated and made of fondant. Is there a trick to this? How do you do it? Anyone?

Thanks for any info.

I made a wedding gown out of the wonder mold from wilton and follwed the instructions that came with it. You rolled logs of fondant that taper to a point at one end. The dress form was a barbie covered in black fondant. My pic is in my photos.

If you are doing the sheet cakes with the dress on it, I read that you cut it in strips and put it on the cake in layers, kinda of overlapping each other, to give it the pleat effect, folding over the edges a little to give it a smooth look.

Hope this helps....

Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. I guess you start from one side and go to the other. It will cover the sides and bottom. Thanks again.
