I am having trouble attaching a picture to this site. Not sure how to do it. Anyway, if you go to www.maggieaustincake.com there is a picture on her site where there are all ruffles on the side of the cake. How is this done? I keep seeing it lately. Diane

I am sure everyone has their own ways, I roll out my fondant so its 1/8 inch thick then I cut 1/2 inch strips and I curve the piece a little and on the outside of the curve I use my ball tool to thin and slightly ruffle and attach starting at the top. It does not have to be perfect(that is the shabby chic look), I use gum arabic to attach , just a little painted line along the bottom of the strip. I just go down the cake. PM if you have any questions. It's pretty easy to do , just takes some time.
