And: Prepare and cover cake base with 24 oz. fondant.

Step 3

Bake and cool a 2-layer 8 in. cake and 3-layer 12 in. cake (trim one layer to 1 in. high for a 5 in. high tier). Prepare and cover cakes with fondant. Position cakes on base and prepare for stacked construction.

Step 4

Insert 4 in. plastic dowel rod in center of 8 in. cake to support topper. Use macrame mold to make four quilted border sections. Attach for bottom border of 8 in. cake with piping gel, trimming as needed.

Step 5

Use cake divider to divide 12 in. cake in tenths, marking cake at top. Roll 10- 2 in. balls of fondant into tapered 5 in. long logs. Attach at marks with piping gel, wide end down. Roll out fondant 1/16 in. thick. Imprint design using graceful vines mat. Cut 10 rectangles, 8 in. x 7 in. Form vertical pleats by placing three plastic dowel rods under fondant alternating with two bamboo dowel rods on top. Remove rods and pinch top of rectangle closed to create a triangular drape. Attach over fondant logs with piping gel, curling bottom edges under slightly for puddle effect.

Step 6

Use snow white buttercream icing and tip 2 to pipe over imprinted designs.
