I'm not sure what you call this. But I am wondering if there are any instructions on how to fold or drape fondant. I want to place a fondant ribbon on the bottom of a cake, but I would like to fold the fondant so it looks like a double or triple ribbon.

Am I making sense?

If I'm understanding you correctly, you can bunch it up until you like the look, and apply to your cake. If you'd like a more consistently-looking drape, you can first arrange it over wooden dowel rods to shape it, then lift it up and apply directly to your cake. (if this makes sense!)

Yep that's it. It seems rather difficult. I guess the best way to do it is to just try it. Thanks!

Lizmybit it's not that difficult just practice. You can do it. I sort of wing it as a pose of using the dowels but the dowels will give you the same consistency.
