So I would like to try the ruffle affect that I have seen on here many, many times. The one where you cut strips of fondant and then ruffle with the ball tool and attach to the cake. My question is, do you have to cover the cake in fondant first and then attach ruffles or can you attach them to buttercream? Any help is very appreciated!
Hi! I would cover the cake with fondant first. Depending on your buttercream, the ruffles may be too heavy and they might slide. HTH
Thank you! That was my thinking also
I have done this ruffle cake 3 times now and never covered the entire cakie in fondant. I did a very this layer of buttercream and it held perfect. The strips I used were made of circles so they were not as long as a strip that would wrap around the entire cake. I have a picture of one of them in my pics its pink/grey. Good luck!! It's time consuming
Hi, this was on here little bit ago. hth
