Hey everyone,


I'm making a Frozen Elsa cake and I found a picture of an Elsa cake done by someone else and I really loved how they did the pleats (I think that's what they're called) on her dress and wanted to make mine like that as well. I've searched online for tutorials and found a couple good ones but they didn't look exactly like the pleats on the Elsa cake I saw. If someone could please explain how to do it I would be very grateful (how to make the pleats and tips on how to make it the same length all the way around). I'm making the cake tomorrow. I'll include a picture of the Elsa cake I'm talking about. Thank you!

That should be a simple matter of gathering small sections of fondant and placing them around the doll's waist.

I recommend using small sections (like maybe 3"-4" wide because using larger ones will result in big bumpy waist.  You can overlap some of the sections slightly which will hide some of the 'seams'.

Anyway - that's how I'd do it.
