Hi! 


Does someone know how to make the dripping effect on top of the fondant? I was thinking i could use pipping gel but i'm afraid it will not set and keep on dripping.. Also in the picture looks very shiny... Please Help!5616713fefbf2.jpeg

You could use white chocolate ganache, heated a bit for a runnier consistency.  Either top the cake with it and let it run down the sides on its own, or place it in a squeeze bottle and then you can control how much drips down the sides.

thx! I actually thought of that but wanted the exact look as in the pic since it kinda looks transparent and glossy and chocolate will not.

Might just be a glaze made from confectioners sugar and water.

Looking closer at that top tier, there might be a royal icing outline, which is then filled with thinned royal, or some other sort of glaze.

Wilton makes a glaze that i buy at michaels.  You microwave it to your desired consistency, then pour it where you want it.  It drips, then sets.

hi mymamacakes!

I actually bought the glaze... Is it the pipping gel one?

But I ended up using a sugar glaze I made... I Didn't do much dripping but I liked the look. Thank you!
