Just wondering how to achieve the pleated look with fondant on a cake base. I think it looks so pretty. Couldn't find any info on it.

Thanks~

Do you have a photo or link? There are all sorts of different pleats out there. What are you interested in doing??

Seems like I've seen a lot of pictures but of course can't find one now. I love the look where they take the fondant and gently pleat it on the cake board.

I am also interested in this. I tried to do it about a year ago (when I was super noob to caking) and it came out awful.

Hi, here is a link to a pleated tutorial, also on this site, a video tut of a beautiful gumpaste rose.

Edited to add...was not sure if you meant on the cake itself or on cake board, either way this tut should be of interest.
