Bring couture cake techniques into your kitchen as you learn classic fabric effects in fondant with Marsha Winbeckler.
Meet your instructor Marsha Winbeckler, an accomplished decorator, teacher and editor.
Learn the basics of creating ruffles: rolling, cutting, folding and attaching them to a cake. Add luster and color and even make a sweet ruffle puff.
Thinning the edges of your fondant adds delicacy when creating ruffle ribbons and rosettes.
Use a former to create exquisite box pleats and arrange those pleats into elegant designs for your cake.
Make fabric-effect knife and folded pleats and then use a template to add movement and sophistication and learn to add pleats to the top of the cake, too.
Horizontal and angled pleating are perfect when replicating wedding dresses or other fabric effects and Marsha tackles one last pleating option: gathered pleats.
Make opulent swags and drop drapes using a form you can easily make from dowels and a foam board and add extra extravagance with scalloped edges and textured fondant.
Marsha demonstrate how to make show-stopping cascading drapes that flow down two-tier cakes. Learn to finish your cake with a ribbon tail, ruffle flower or even a ribbon rose.
