AGoogle "fondant ruffle cake tutorial" there tons of them out there. There's also a craftsy class dedicated to this very style might want to check it out
Thanks so much.. I thought about Craftsy too.. I have purchased several of the courses from there .. I will google too and see what I can find! :)
For my recent cake, I Googled and searched YouTube for all the free help I could find. There are lots of tutorials out there.
Some of the better ones for me included:
Ruffling is very time intensive. This 8-12-16 took about 6-7 hours. I used a 50/50 gumpaste/fondant mix, rolled to a 3 on my KA pasta roller, frilled the edge, then did another two strips while the first set up a bit. I did NOT try to have strips long enough to go all the way around (well, OK, I started trying, but found that 12 inches or so is about as much as I could handle, esp at 3am!!) I overlapped my strips by 1/2" and continued on around.
