Actually this is easier than you might think.

1) Roll out some fondant or 50/50 fondant & GP. You will want it about 1/8" thick. Thicker if you want the ruffles REALLY ruffly.

2) Cut into even strips or ribbons.

3) Take a toothpick or a lollipop stick and very gently with even pressure roll back and forth working in a 1" section at a time. Only roll the toothpick over one side of the ribbon, either right or left. This will be your ruffling side. Leave the opposite side alone so that you have a nice smooth edge to adhere to your cake. (Hope that makes sense.) The more you roll your toothpick, the more ruffles you will get. But be careful, the fondant will get thinner at the edge as you roll. If you roll too much, it will begin to tear.

I'm sorry ahuvas but it's the same the open window says "DNS wrong, the server is not found" something like that because the window open in spanish as you see in the pic:

If your asking about buttercream....there are several tips you can use your BC can't be to thick. I have use a 70 tip before, but I am no expert and can't see the pic very well either.
Maybe someone with a little more knowledge will wee this and help.
Happy Caking,
