Hello all,

 

I'm going to be doing a bridal shower cake and I've seen many cakes with the fondant bridal gown laying on top. I'm sure it's trickier than it looks! I'm planning on making a 9" layer cake and was wondering if anyone knew if there was a template or some mathematical formula that would tell me how big to cut the fondant? Or should I just eyeball it? I've worked with small fondant decorations before but nothing this "elaborate". My other question is - I always refrigerate my cakes before delivering or serving - if I finish this cake on Monday for a pick-up on Tuesday and the cake is for Wednesday lunch, should I put the fondant gown on the cake Monday or wait until Tuesday?

Thanks for your help!

RJ

Hi, I just made one last week.  I used a picture of the brides gown printed it from the computer, cut it out and used that as my template.  If you go online a google wedding dress sketches you should be able to find a nice gown that will work in the same way.  I would leave the dress till Tuesday.  I will be posting a video on this cake next week on my youtube cake decorating channel.  Check it out http://www.youtube.com/user/TheIcingArtist

-I hope this was helpful!
