Calling all my google heros!  

 

I know I recently saw a cake where the "pleating" was really done by making line marks on the fondant.  Please help me find a photo of this technique.

Was someone asking about it on here fairly recently? I thought I remembered seeing a cake that had a fondant pleat that led to a discussion about if it was carved or actually pleated.

Tutorial photo
This it? This was marking on the buttercream not the fondant.

I know this isn't it, but it's a pretty cool faux pleated rolling pin.

This isn't a tutorial but it has some close up's. It looks like they did some fondant sausages under fondant then made some marks with a tool after. I have a really cool tutorial on my ipad that's like the caketress style pleats, it might take me a while to find! I have so many on here it's ridiculous! I'll keep looking for you!

AYou guys are so awesome!

I searched all 17 pages of drape cakes & didn't see it. Finally thought of ask y'all & you jumped right on here to help. Thank you!

Six, yes it was in a recent thread. I can't remember the title so my search ended poorly. That pin I awesome.

Smckinny, thank you! That's not it but you are awful sweet to help.

Calewitch, I'm using my phone this early AM. That takes me to a bunch of photos. I'm going to run to the big computer! I love BeyondButtercream's work!

DeliciousDesserts Posted 24 Jul 2013 , 12:05pm

YES Cakewitch!  That is very similar to what I was trying to find.  Thank you.

 

It isn't the exact cake I was thinking but it is a great example of what I meant!

thecakewitch Posted 24 Jul 2013 , 3:41pm

ADo I get a prize?

DeliciousDesserts Posted 24 Jul 2013 , 3:50pm

AYes, you get my honest, heartfelt appreciation.

Prize would've been bigger it had been the one Sixinarow & I rember.

Oh no. I figured it was going to be fairly easy...use a vien tool to draw the lines.

sixinarow Posted 24 Jul 2013 , 4:04pm

I KNOW!!! Where is that cake?!? I was trying to remember who was in on the discussion...but I can't. icon_sad.gif
