Hi All.  I am going to try to explain this the best I can.  smiley

So think of a cake on pillars.  You know, the way cakes used to be done a long time ago.  LOL  I'm doing one soon and the bride wants "drapes" hanging down the pillars.  I'm thinking either cake lace or edible fabric.  The problem is that when I make either of those they become dry and brittle over the course of a day.  Is there any way to make cake lace or edible fabric so that it can stay out of an enclosed container and have it not become breakable?

i would find a different method -- but i don't know what kind of drapes you mean either -- full disclosure i have never used edible fabric but i have used the lace -- i mean you could use fondant or pipe cake type drapes -- if she means like curtain drapes, you can pipe those too or use fondant-- use something that would be ok for it to harden like royal -- maybe?

Thank you ladies!  Always great advice.  

I'm going to have to figure out a way to post pictures somehow.  I'm still in the "practicing" mode as the wedding is still 3 weeks away.  I ended up making edible fabric with the chocolate method, not wafer paper.  It's amazing!  I hope the rest of this cake goes as well.  :-)
