If you go to Lori's blog, she has huge pictures. Click on them and you'll be able to see better. She's the queen of fashion (ruffles, fabric-like) inspired cakes.

Here's the link for that class in her blog.

Thank you, all of her cakes are great! Any idea of how to achieve the first look on the link I posted.

Strips of fondant, ruffled and glued to the cake. I imagine it is a ton of work. I actually work at the place where your sample photo comes from, but I don't know who the celebrity is in the photo so I can't look for the bigger photo to enlarge.

Here's another link to another thread. They were discussing Marina Sousa's beautiful blue ruffles cake. There are instructions scrolling down, after the photos on how to hold the strips up like that.

Oh no. I don't make That photo, your first sample, is from the magazine I work at. I hope that Marina Sousa photo and instructions on how she did them can help you.

hey divinecc, I kept on looking. It was the Alyssa Milano wedding cake that showed in our magazine. There has been other threads on CC, though, which will be helpful too.

There is one here:

This person made a beautiful tutu cake with even better ruffles:

And she posted instructions:

Same technique as the Marina Sousa, but explained a lot better.

You really did some investigating for me! You nailed it, that is exactly what I wanted icon_smile.gif I thought I looked through every google page and forum I could but you found way more than I did. Thanks so much! I love the Arizona Cake Show Cake it was beautiful and the marshmallow idea instead of cottonballs is great!

Those are beautiful cakes - love this post! Does anyone have instructions on how to do the fabric looking rosettes on the side of the rosette cake?
Those are amazing!

You can sort of get an idea if you watch the video about Lori. It shows snippets of one of them being made, but it's not exactly that one.

I love the rosettes too, all of her cakes are so creative.
