When I did my drapes I simply cut out a rectangle of fondant and laid it over 2 dowels that were seperated slightly to create the "crumpled fabric" look. Does that make since? Hope so.

Hi, much the same as above. Measure on your cake how long the drape will be making allowances and adding extra for any bends etc.
Roll out fondant to about 3 times the width yo want your drape to be.
I use wooden bbq skewers for the effect, laying 3 on the work top spaced about 1cm apart. Lay your fondant on top of these and then at the ends gently make the skewers close together. Slide out your skewers and lift the drape carefully and attach to cake. Hope this helps. Good luck.
