Is it one piece folded up (painstaking) or several pieces somehow.. or impressed somehow?

I've seen it on a couple of cakes so I'd like the broader groups' opinion on the best way to do this.
TIA!

I think he said he made long pieces of fonant and wrapped around the cake and then overlapped the next ones.....I would pm rylan...is that a he or a she?

Rylan is a he. He posts his cakes on Youtube, too. Pretty cake.

Rylan is extremely helpful. I'm sure he'd have no problems helping you out if you PM'ed him.

It is really easy to do. Cut long strips of fondant (1 inch x circumference of the cake). Roll it up like a tape, making sure that you dust it up so it doesn't stick. Put some edible glue on your cake and then start unrolling the fondant tape while you attach it around the sides. Just keep layering it until you reach the top. Let me know if you need any further clarification.

Ok, now I'm confused. I am quite sure I made the "mistake" of referring to Rylan in the masculine term before and was promptly corrected, by Rylan.....?!?!?!

I've seen the post too but I also saw another saying he was a guy (by Rylan himself).

Here are the 2 posts I saw:

and the other post:

I'm sure he was just pulling our leg on the other post we saw or maybe he just likes to keep us guessing icon_lol.gif

Either way I'm happy he's around! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks xstitcher. I have to admit that you have been one of my favorite cakers in here.

To clarify all of you, I am not a man nor a woman. I am what I am. I am a caker.

Well Since I am Just finding out you are a Guy, and not a Gal, I have to say it does not matter to me, I thought you were indeed a woman, I don' t want to sound rude, but I read in the other post that you are gay, If I aread correctly. I had some gay friends and they were the best people to be friends with, But I lost contact with them, so I will have to make you my new best friend, maybe we will meet face to face someday, Maybe ICES 2010, Because you make some out of the boxes cakes and I love them

Allison, you made me smile (I had a rough morning due to one CCer).

I am purely a woman at heart but masculine in the outside.

I'd love to meet you at the ICES convention! You seem such a nice person.

Oh no Jamie, like I said, you can never offend me because you are so sweet. I was reffering to a different thread.

Anyways, THANKS everyone for the kind words. I feel like you are all my family.

Take care everyone.
