AHi everyone,

I really need help on this one. I did this cake and really I do not like it. Something is really wrong and I cannot really figure it out. The cake should look like the pinterest picture attached but my result is disapointing and I cannot figure out what I did wrong. I rolled my ruffle with a pasta roller to number 3 thickness then thin down a bit the edge.

Please any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

AThere are a lot more layers, spaced closer together in the picture.

Should I roll my fondant thinner too? Because I want to scrap it off and redo the whole thing

I would roll it thinner, maybe gumpaste it's better

AUse 50/50 fondant and gumpaste so the ruffles can still be cut with a knife during cake cutting :)

They also look a bit less wide than what you have

Great job!!!
Did you end up doing 50/50 gp and fondant?
Also were your strips all about 3-4 inches long around the whole cake?  I am doing that exact pinterest cake! :)
Thanks

A3" long strip. No I used 100% fondant but I used a pasta roller at number 6 thickness. The fondant was really thin and when light was hitting the cake it was amazing the effect
