Heres a couple of links depending on the kind of ruffle you want icon_smile.gif

http://www.sugarcraft.com/catalog/gumpaste/frills.htm - with this one type in s.u.g.ar.c.r.a.f.t (without the dots - this site blocks the words) between the "www." and the "/catalog"

I've done that kind of thing in a couple of my cakes here in my photos. I use a garrett frill cutter, and a frilling tool to get the flounce happening. I also use a 50/50 combination of GP and fondant.

I use a bulbus (sp) tool to frill. Very much like a ball tool only cone shaped.

You can also use the toothpick method to achive that.
