I think this is just gorgeous...
How do they make the horizontal pleats?

It looks to me like they are strips of fondant. My guess would be that you would start from the bottom and then put the next strip of top of that one and so on and so forth.

I remember seeing them try to recreate this on Ace of Cakes... they had such a tough time Duff called Collette Peters for advice... Funny thing is I can't remember how they finally did it! Sorry, I'm no help!

how they did it on ace of cakes is they cut strips of fondant and then glued that to a fondant that's the same height and width as the tier and then wrap it around. it's going to have a seam at the back, there's no way around it, said collette if i remember correctly.

Hmm. Sounds tricky...but a fun challenge. If anyone out there has tried this kind of design, successfully or not, I'd love to hear about it!

yes, I've made this type of cake several times. ROll out fondant the length of circumference of cake, fold in half lengthwise (like a ribbon rose), wrap around strating from bottom of tier with the crease part facing down. Then keep wrapping strips, one a time, overlapping the strip below it just over the seam and work your way till the top of the cake., A very quick and easy wrapping.

I think I can handle that part, but what do you do when you get to the top of the cake?

You need somehting on the top, like a flower topper or something.
