So a friend of a friend asked me to make her wedding cake. I'm super excited but I think I might be in over my head. She sent me a picture of what she wants, which I'll post here and I attempted to recreate on my trial cake this weekend. The results were no where near what I wanted.

So I'm hoping you geniuses here will be able to help! First picture is the original, second picture is my sad attempt!/photo.php?fbid=10150414382970468&set=p.10150414382970468&theater!/photo.php?fbid=679969519675&set=a.634060706305.2191367.120405192&theater

She want the draping in turquoise. Any suggestions?

I've got the cakes on cake central now, If there's a way to get them directly on the forum, I unfortunately can't figure out how, I've read the attachment feature isn't working right now

We are all our own worst critics! I can't see the original but your try looks great! All I would suggest is maybe letting the fondant dry a little on dowels to get the even creased/drapey look (like in a couple of my pictures) and then use water to make the fondant at the top of the draping a little higher, closer to the middle/top and just try and hold it there for a minute so it doesn't slide down. If that's the look you're going for. But once again your first try looked good icon_smile.gif
