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.
