the bride wants all three tiers of the cake (10", 8" and 6") to have that wrap sort of look to it like the top of her dress. not sure how to achieve that look. the pic might be too tiny to see which i can't change but i can email a much better pic to anyone that really thinks they can help me out. just give me your email address and i will send it out. thanks so much. first actual "wedding" cake for me so i want to get it right.

i think i would try that with a soft piece of vinyl, cut to the size of the cake, much like you would to a chocolate wrap, have it a bit wider (taller then the tier) then roll your fondant it fit the vinyl and kind of squish the vinyl so that the fondant is now the height of the tier, and then wrap around the cake. Or wrap then squish.

Yes, I've seen several cakes decorated like that - just make your fondant into uneven collars and overlap as you work down the cake tier. (Hope that makes sense!)
