Hi everyone,

i've been asked to make a shoe and handbag themed cake for a friend which isn't a problem but she would like a fondant strip around each layer in the shape of a belt instead of ribbon. Would you just use normal fondant for this, cut a strip out and attach to cake with edible glue or would you need to cut it out in advance??not sure if it would then crack when attaching it to cake??

hope that makes sense! any advice would be gratefully recieved!xxx

In order to "bend" the fondant needs to be fresh.
Just cut, place them around the bottom edge of each tier, snug up the edges and secure with fondant softened to glue stage with water.
If you are really good the edges will be invisible, if not, every cake has a back side.
Would be cute to make them different sizes with buckle accents.
