AI've seen several tutorials on buttercream and fondant ruffles. Thought I had a pretty goig idea on what is possible from both until I saw this picture
How do you use buttercream to make ruffles this thin. Doesn't seem possible.
I think whoever wrote the blurb to that cake was mistaken, or referring to the color? I definitely don't think its buttercream--you can see the lines of the individual strips that would be there with fondant/gum paste.
AThis thread talks about a cake that looks like the one that you posted.
AThanks for taking the time to respond. I thought it had to be fondant but as a newbie there's alot I still have to learn so I wanted to make sure.
There is no way that is buttercream. That's 100% fondant or gumpaste. I just posted a message to the writer of that blog telling her she's wrong and that she should correct her post.
I also noticed she has a wedding cake gallery but isn't crediting a single cake maker from the photos she is using on it. Uncool.
This stuff makes me mad.
