Hi I have to "copy" this cake for the most part with some additions and changes...The customer wants the ruffles that are shown in the picture...what is the best way to do this? I found a cutter on Global Sugar Art...just wanted to know if there is any other ways before I order that. Thanks

That uses a garret frill cutter.

I have a scalloped round cookie cutter I use for the same thing, but then you have to cut off the excess and stuff, so you would still probably be better off with a garret frill cutter...

Ditto, then you use a bulbous tool to ruffle it. There's a picture of the tool on this website http://www.ahcakedesign.com/43-09pme.html

A toothpick (or similar) will also frill the fondant (or gp)

when i make ruffles i just roll the fondant or gumpaste thin enough and then frill with toothpick but i guess it's not as uniformed as that.
