Until I can do up my own pictures, I cannot post the one I have on this site. ( Copyright issue) If after reading the directions and looking at the photo in my album, (Krand wedding cake) you still need help pm me and I will email the magazine pic to you.
Ice your cake thickly with buttercream. The consistency should be a little stiffer than what you might normally use. Let the icing sit for a little bit and smooth. Divide the cake into however many sections you want to use ( 4 or six is probably the best). With one hand hold a paper towel against the side of the cake. Using the index finger of your other hand "swipe" a swag between two of your marked points. This should be the lowest swag on the cake. Continue swiping swags above the first one. They should be somewhat irregular, this will help to give and effect of movement to the drape. Be sure to go up to the top edge of the cake (there will be no border piped on the top). Dont push in too hard!! You dont want the cake peeking through
Continue around the cake until you have completed swags from point to point. Where the swags meet you can pipe ribbon bows or place flowers.
I hope this helps!
