Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

Hi everyone,

I absolutely LOVE this cake that one of my clients showed me.  If you are not familiar with what a "SAREE" is, it is a very long piece of fabric that a woman would drape around a woman.  The fabrics come in vibrant colors, sequences, styles etc....

So the cake is for an 80th birthday, and before I can commit to it ..i wanted to know if anyone can assit me in how you would do the draping shown on the cake?  Is it just a big piece of fondant put onto the cake and then pleated?  Would you then decorate the fondant once it is on the cake?  I'm scared of it cracking and drying out....

Any thoughts or advice??

Here is the cake:

Hi Meera..just wanted to say the cake is absol AMAZING!!!!...I too wanted to make something similar for my mom andwas wondering if you could help me with some questions:

1. Did you use fondant for the saree or something else.

2. How did u get the gold lustre in the end....did you air spray?

 

Thanks,

Susan.

Hey Susan, thanks so much for the compliments...it was a challenge but i'm glad it worked out well! :)

To answer your questions:

1.  Yes I used fondant and worked really quickly with it when placing it on the cake, as it starts to dry...

2.  I first put an impression on the fondant (prior to placing it on the cake) and then used gold air brush spray and sprayed the edges of the saree.

Meera, WOW is all I can say!!! It is beautiful!! You did a great job!!!

The description of the cake on flickr says "White chocolate dough sari"

Your cake is beautiful!

Modeling chocolate is a lot more forgiving than fondant, so that's probably why it works on the long drape on the original.
