I love the popular "wedding gown" dress cake design that I keep seeing on this site. I get to do one this weekend for a shower icon_smile.gif

I've tried looking for a tutorial, but haven't found one. The thread I found said you just cut out fondant triangles and layer them to create the pleated look.

My question is, do you start with a center piece at the middle of the dress and add the triangles out from the middle, or do you start at one side and just work your way across? I wasn't sure of the best way to do this.

Thanks for any help.

Start at the sides and work your way in. That way, the last piece covers the edges - looks a lot cleaner that way.
