ACan someone please tell me how to get the dripping icing effect using fondant? I tried doing a snow layer on my last Christmas cake but it didn't turn out as neat as I had hoped. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! [URL]http://cakecentral.com/g/i/2870351/a/3273658/sort/display_order/[/URL]
It is possible that it's not a "drip" method at all, and the fondant has just been cut that way to give the illusion???
ACut a circle of fondant big enough to cover at least half of the cake. Now with a nice knife cutter, and randomly, cut the circle in large rounded zig-zags like if you were trying to cut out a big flower (do you get the idea?) now is time to smooth those edges!!! You can use a ball tool or your own fingers with a little bit of shortening so your fingers wont stick to it. Then just brush some water on your cake and stick your topper piece. It will look like dripping effect. HTH
