hi everyone. any ideas how can i produce the lower tier of this cake? i plan to do this for the snow white theme birthday party of my daughter. thanks a lot!
Roll out a large circle of fondant, place your cake in the middle and pull the fondant up the cake, creating the pleats as you work around the circle.
Kinda like pulling fabric up and around something.
i see what you mean texasSugar. but what about underneath the tier? also it seems like the skirt have kind of a balloon effect... i'll probably don't need to press the fondant on the sides and leave it draping right? thanks so much for your ideas.
I wouldn't pull the fondant up tight on the sides, just leave it loose. You may have to add a little tylose, cmc, gum trag, gum tex or gumpaste in to the fondant to help hold the pleating shapes while they set.
oh i see... thanks so much for your help. i will definitely try this
and share some pic after. thanks again!
I can't wait to see the pics. It's a very interesting look.
