I'm trying to pleat the top and bottom tiers of my cake, and it's giving me issues. I was using dowel rods (Wilton method), and I like how it looks, but I don't like the seam. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

FYI - I would roll out one long strip and then I'd only have one seam, but I don't have dowels that long considering my bottom tier is 14 inches.

Yes, thanks for responding. I used that same cake as a reference and made strips as suggested. I will post a pic when it's done. Thanks again! icon_smile.gif

There is a rolling pin available that does the same effect. Its put out by RVO and Global Sugar Art carries it.

It's a beautiful look to be sure!! I'd do it the ribbon roses way -- roll out long, fold in half lengthwise and attach from the bottom up.
