Has anyone ever done one of these? I'm draping it, not laying it flat so I'm not sure if it'd be better to use fondant squares or paint them on.

I have never done it but thought about it. If I were to do it (without any directions from anyone who's done it), I would do it like a weaved matt. Cut a square piece of white fondant, cut slits down it in one direction, then cut strips of red fondant (if you're doing a red picnic type of tablecloth) and weave it in and out of the white fondant.

Does that make any sense? We used to make those placematts in grade school with construction paper.

Sorry if I've confused you more.

I made a tablecloth for one of my cakes that looked like a fall picnic basket. I rolled out white fondant as a base and placed alternating blue (or red or any color you want) squares. I lightly rolled the whole thing so the squares were pressed onto the bottom fondant. Then I draped it so it looked like a table cloth. I actually got the idea from Ace of Cakes.
