I have been asked to make a wedding cake using the technique similar to the one below (click on the link).
Does anyone know of the easiest, sure-fire way of achieving this look?
Do you roll out the fondant/gumpaste and set it to dry around a cakepan or cake dummy to dry/firm up and then slip it over the cake when ready (like a sleeve)?
My first inclination was to roll it out, add the eyelet decorations and then wrap it around the cake immeidiately but my fear is that it would stretch out.
Looking forward to your thoughts on this.
