Q&A with Vagabond Baker

PrettyLissy asked:
Hey, Vagabond Baker, lovely cake! Did you use gum paste for the ruffles? I was asking myself if that was possible just the other day.
Vagabond Baker answered:
I used MMF, I was afraid that gum paste would be too hard to cut. I kept going back and rearranging using pieces of parchment to prop up the ruffles in some places until everything had dried a little.
Terri Densmore asked:
Which class did you learn how to make the beautiful ruffles on your cake? Its exquisite!
Vagabond Baker answered:
That was really just experimentation . I cut long strips of fondant, then rolled a brush handle over one edge ,pushing pretty hard to get the ruffle effect.
