Ruffles are in right now for clothes and even cakes! I’ve posted how to make a ruffle cake made with frosting, but now you can do it with fondant. So I have a really simple fondant ruffle cake for you guys and how to do it! Hope you guys all like it!!!
Have your cake ready covered in fondant and check out these next few steps on how to make a ruffle for the cake.
I kneaded some fondant then rolled it into a long string and use my fondant roller to make it thin about 1/8″ or thinner.
Then we’re going to cut out a scallop edge. I happen to have a cutter but you can easily do this without it and it doesn’t have to be perfect either.
After you made the scallop edge cut out, get your thin foam and make sure you put some corn starch on it so the fondant does not stick.
Using the veining/elbow tool, we’re going to thin out the scalloped side of the fondant. Press firmly down and slowly moving next to the line you made with the tool and do it again and again until completed.
Now get some gum glue and we’re going to glue it onto your fondant cake. Be gentle cause you don’t want to break the fondant to tear. So my method was to glue about 2 inches at a time and turned my cake slowly and attach the ruffle.
After gluing the first layer on, use your fingers to flare the edges outwards from the cake.
Basically you will keep repeating these steps to do the next few ruffles. slowly add the next ruffle on top of the other.
Make as many as you like! I think the more ruffles the better
