Years ago, when I first started cake decorating , The I.C.E.S cake magazine had a lady who did the most beautiful drapes out of buttercream. It was a turtorial on this. I still have the magazine somewhere lol. but what she did was do a heavy crusting buttercream and then took a viva paper towel with your sides of her fingers or side round parts of her hands and carved the buttercream into drapes on each tier. I have done this method on smaller cakes and it works great and very easy to do. You can change the draping as you go if you don't like it, just as long as you work with the crusting buttercream before it sets up. Hope this helps, Good luck thumbs_up.gif

One of my FIRST works in fondant was fondant theater drapes: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1279708

If I could do it on my 1st or 2nd fondant cake, you can do it! thumbs_up.gif A fellow CC'er was very helpful!

Check out the link on my signature. Under the basic tutorials, you can find several drape tutorials (some are in between pages).
