Thank you for your response Jimbos76. Do you have a link to that thread? For clarification: the circles were on the cake, then the strips were attached to them? Did you have to support the ruffled edges from 'flopping' or leaning? As for the point where the strips were attached to the circle did you have to fold the edge a little to get some surface to stick them on the circle? Gosh, I hope my questions make sense.
