Hi, Can anyone help I have been asked to try and recreate the effect on this wedding cake but am stumped as the photo is not brilliant it looks like the fondant has been embossed and draped but the icing appears too thin for that so not sure any suggestions welcome.

Hi Liverpooli,


Here's a link for a fondant pleat tutorial which looks really helpful for what it looks like you need




I would spray your finished cake with silver lustre dust to make it give that shiny effect and if you've got an airbrush kit then you can use the pearl effect for the same effect. I hope this helps :-D

Good Luck

if you do it the other way and do it all the way around you'd get the same effect x
