Can someone tell me how to approach different colored, horizontally striped fondant on a round cake?

Personally, I wouldn't go down the sides... just stop at the top edge and put a border just below it. Other than that, I don't know either!

Good luck!

Just cut out strips of fondant and 'glue' on with water.

I have another response for you...

Start at the bottom on the sides and go right up to the middle of the top and either cut it out diagonally at the top or square and just put a flower or something in the middle to cover it! If you do the diagonal cut, it will come together to a point and that would look cool!

If I understand it correctly, you want horizontal stripes. I have seen people on TV cut the strips, wrap it around a piece of pvc like ribbon on a spool. Then lay the ribbon strips next to the cake, use water or something to attach the fondant and unroll the ribbon as you go around the cake.

The trick is to get evenly spaced stripes and I have seen folks use widths of paper cut to the space they want which they use as a guide to keep the fondant strips evenly apart. Hope that helps.
