Please see attached photo of dress. I am doing a 4 tier cake, and need to create this effect on the cake. I'm fine with the top of the dress, but not sure how to go about creating the cascading effect on the bottom three tiers using fondant. I will need to pipe the edge trim, place fondant buttons going down length, and have it flare at the bottom.

Has anyone done this effect? Do you go in and out on each tier, or drape a triangular piece down the 3 tiers. Any ideas would be welcome, thank you!

I would probable drape. I would be afraid it would be more like stairs otherwise, lol. Good luck, It's a beautiful dress, make sure you post pics when it's done icon_smile.gif

That's going to be a beautiful cake! I would drape as well, cut the red into a a big diamond,and roll the end out rounded then trim it and attatch, then drape the white. I just did a small dress on a dress form and would love to do a tiered dress cake! Good luck I am sure its going to be stunning!
