I found this cake picture online and I just fell in love with it. I was wondering how to do the "drippy" effect. Do you just cover the cake with 1 piece of fondant and then add the drippy top and sides made out of fondant in another color? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Yes, looks to me like the just added the top pc after the main fondant. Also looks like they hand molded the center part and stuck it on.

I'm not experienced in fondant, however...
Would it work better to treat each layer like a tier? Brown fondant, then pink top, then stack?
I would be so worried if I just stuck the wave on the sides that it would look like something just stuck on.
