White Frill Design Wedding Cake

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Fondant & SugarPaste What are you most proud of? This was my first attempt at the technique of making a frill cake and many people commented that it ended up looking more clean and nicer than the artist's rendition that I was pulling the technique from. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You must know how to work with a 50/50 combination of fondant and gumpaste and put aside atleast 6 hours to make just the frills.

What you will need

Q&A with HeavenlyCakes

packagedeal asked:
Be very proud of that one...beautiful. What tool did you use to make the ruffle?
HeavenlyCakes answered:
I hand cut every single ruffle from a 50/50 sugarpaste/fondant mix by rolling out 2 1/2 foot sections and trimming then with a rolling cutter, one side straight edge and one side wavy. Wilton makes them. After cutting out the strips I used a stick to then out the edges. It was tedious but achieved the effect. :) And thank you for the compliment. It is much appreciated.

Fabulous! I know that's a ton of work, making all those ruffles. But it was worth it. It's absolutely gorgeous!

I've been a cake decorator for many years, now doing it just for friends, relatives. Made many a wedding cake, but with the latest technique of fondant cakes, this is absolutely beautiful. Lovely work. You are an artist.
HeavenlyCakes answered:
That means so very much to me. Thank you, truly. :) I just started making cakes about a year and a half ago full time. Before that it was just for friends and family as you mentioned. Self-taught and I love what I do and making brides happy. I appreciate your compliments.
