My daughter is getting married in September and we would like to mimic the ruching effect from the bodice of the dress on a smallish - maybe two tiered - cutting cake. Have any of you talented cakesters found a way to achieve this with buttercream? I searched the galleries, but either searched wrong or there just isn't anything......

If it attached, here is a pic of the dress. If not.........icon_sad.gif

Maybe if you had a recipe that crusted well you could draw lines in it with a fondant tool, or press something into the icing to give that effect. I would definitely experiment first.

Maybe use the edge of an acetate sheet to press lines in the buttercream?
