Is ther a tutorial on how to do the fondant drapes....the ones that cascade down several tiers....thanks for help
I wanted something more from top to bottom...anything else out there? DOES EVERYONE USE 50/50 GP AND FONDANT?
this is basically how I did my drapes, with the dowels to help form the folds. I let it dry just a bit, so when I picked it up, the folds didn't just sag out. I made my fondant pieces about 3 1/2 " wide, length was 8" to about 15" as the tiers grew. I made Michelle Foster's Fondant recipe, and mixed with gumpaste powder (you could just mix f and gp). Roll thin. Mine did stretch some as I picked them up, you just have to work with it, then take off the extra.
I used vanilla to brush on to attach the drapes to the fondant.[/url]
Thanks. Actually I want to hang drapes from top tier to bottom third tierkind of like the pattern of a "z' For lack of better description.
Same technique, just a lot longer. That's where letting it sit and firm up just a bit might help. and get longer dowels from the hobby store! I had sticks end to end under my longer pieces to support the whole length! But at 1am, ya use what ya got!
you didn't leave them in the cake did you?
