Thank you Lynette. It did take forever! Watching the cake cutters was a hoot because the fondant had set up enough that it was like watching shattered glass with each slice. By the time they were done, the floor was covered with tiny flecks of fondant everywhere and it literally looked like a snow storm had gone through.

Thank you kindly Linda - I can imagine it would be a hard job when it comes to the frilling but oh so rewarding at the end :-)

Oh! When you said 'vintage' I assumed that it was a butter cream cake you were referring to. lol This one wasn't hard to do, Mandy, just a lot of time involved and hard on the old muscles. But the actual frilling part was fairly easy. All I did, was cover the cake in fondant and then cut strips out of fondant and used my ball tool to thin it out on one edge. Then I used the small plastic pencil shaped tool from Wilton (any sharpened small dowel will work) and continued to roll the same edge as with a rolling pin until it started to ruffle on it's own. Then I used a paint brush to brush the thicker end of the strip and place it onto the fondant. If it started to fall down, I used toothpicks stuck at the base of the frill vertically, to hold up the frill until it dried enough to remove the tooth pick. I started at the top of the cake and worked down. Terribly time consuming.
