Project Description

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop Custom Cakes Atelier Link to website or online shop Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake There were various techniques used in this project. The design on the middle tier was a combination of hand painting, and stenciling with royal icing and with disco dust. In the bottom tier, I used the templates that were given in this class to create the pleats. I just resized the template to fit dimensions of my cake. What are you most proud of? I'm very happy with how delicate and dense the pleats ended up looking! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan carefully!

Marsha Winbeckler asked:
I love how chic and elegant it looks.

Hi Marsha - I'm so happy that you liked the cake!
Marsha Winbeckler asked:
You rolled the fondant nice and thin for the pleats--makes a big difference to avoid bulk. Looks great.
Leyda Vakarelov answered:
Thanks Marsha! Soon I'll be sharing another cake where I used your cascade technique with ruffles.
