Can anyone tell me how they made the "pleats" on this cake? I was thinking about pleating a strip the circumference of the cake and wide enough to cover the top. I'm not sure if this would work or how to keep the pleats straight.
The picture won't upload for some reason but this is a link for the cake.
Thanks in advance for your help

I did a cake similar to that.

I cut strips of fondant in equal size pieces and folded one edge under. The fold was probably 1/3 of the total width of the strip. Then I applied the strips, with the folded edge slightly overlapping the unfolded edge of the next strip using a weak gum glue. You could also use water.
