Please can anyone tell me how this was done? I'ld really love to try my hands at it, its beautiful and I forgot who made this cake.
Uh-oh!Cake pic did not attach!
Can you post the link?
How do I post a link?
Ok so I've uploaded the picture to my album, its the 4 tier pleated wedding cake. I wish I knew the maker but I don't so please don't be offended by this its a temporary upload. I'll like to make these kind of pleats on a cake I'm doing but I'm wondering how to go about it and would appreciate so much any pointers from you, thank you.
You can make the pleats one strip at a time, starting with the center pleats and working your way outward.
Pretty! Looks so Art Deco!
Get a cake pan or a dummy cake and play with it.
My thought would be to roll out your fondant like you normally would for a cake, but maybe going a little big on one side. Put it on the cake (pan or dummy) and smooth from one side around until you get the parts where you want to start pleating. If you smooth around the cake (rather than from top to bottom like you normally would) you will end up with an access of fondant on the side you haven't smoothed yet. I'd use that fondant to make the pleats.
Of course I haven't tried this, so my theory could be off base.
