A bride wants to incorporate their Scottish tartans in the design of their wedding & groom's cakes.  For the wedding cake, she just want it as a ribbon around each tier.  I think I can use a printed frosting sheet for that.  But she wants the groom's cake to be a lab coat with the tartan tie.  Since I haven't worked with printed frosting sheets before, I don't know if it will be flexible enough to form into a tie.


Any suggestions on ways to make the tartans would be appreciated.

AI've done tartans with modelling chocolate before. You just have to make sure that you make it on the soft side, since it's hard to drape on the cake if it stiffens up.

Do you have a picture of the plaid on CC?  I can't figure out how to view a user's photos with this new layout!!
