AA friend asked me to make her wedding cake, and she sent me a picture of what she wants. What do you think they used to decorate this cake? Fondant? Gum paste? Candy clay? Any advice of what you would use or any techniques you think would be helpful would be much appreciated!

The cake tiers are covered in white fondant and then fondant strips are applied, slightly overlapped, horizontally. Start with the bottom color and go up halfway with the darker color, do your white angled overlay, also in fondat,  and then finish going up towards the top with your lighter color of strips.  Good luck!!

The original website has a much closer view of this cake:

AThanks so much for your replies! I thought it was probably made out of fondant but I just wasn't sure! Thanks! How much would you charge for this cake?

I think the charge would largely depend on the size of cake that she wants.  This cake is going to be a little labor intensive, so would be more expensive than something simpler.  Is this going to be your gift to her?  Or is she paying for the ingredients and your labor is going to be her gift?  All options to be considered.
