od Morning,

    My bride has requested the pleats/triangles on this cake.   I know Liz M. has a tutorial but to me these look like they were folded not pieced together.  Does anyone know what medium was used?  Does anyone know who made it?  It was in a magazine article.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I would use fondant w/some Tylose added   Make dozen  & dzns of triangles that are folded in 1/2 ...... but then what do I know? :)   To get ea to fold the same score them lightly on the back   That’s my guess

If I had to guess, I would say this one is made of wafer paper.  You just try using a plain sheet of paper and see if you could fold the pattern on one long sheet.  It would probably be tricky.  I agree with kakeladi, doing it one triangle at a time would work for sure.

Definitely wafer paper. Pretty sure this a cake by Cake Heart.

I accidentally stumbled across the originator of this cake today, business name Crummbs.  She is a Canadian designer and absolutely fantastic!  She had several cakes using the folded triangle design and it did appear that they were one individually.

Unfortunately, Sandra is right about the decorator, wrong that she’s Canadian. Her name is Paulin, and she is in Singapore. Website posted.

Now, why did I think she was Canadian?  I think I just sort of associate awesome cakes with Canada, lol.
