Fondant Draping is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from When I was in my Wilton Fondant class, and had done my final cake, I used the draping effect. How beautiful it turned out, was so proud of myself. I find that you must keep the fondant pliable to be able to get the look you want and since it dries quickly, the fondant will hold it's shape. It is a question of whether you roll it too thick or too thin.....believe me once you start doing it you will know right away. Still I believe it is a medium difficulty because you are working with the fondant and need to get a "feel" for the fondant you are using. Would not discourage beginners to try this technique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for your easy techniques to follow. My daughter got married in July and I wanted to make her wedding cake. With your web site available and your easy to follow instructions I was able to provide an everlasting memory. The cake came out beautifully! And a surprise to all of our guest when they were told that the wedding cake did not come from a bakery but from our own kitchen. I owe it all to wilton. Thank you again for all of my inspiration and education that you have provided. I have received many request and have made two other wedding cakes since my daughter's wedding. Your website my have changed my future. I have always dreamed of owning a pastry shop. Wilton might make that a reality. Mike Lepore

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can do a little or you can do a lot, either way this technique is exquisite (especially when you drape a fondant on fondant multicolored American Flag down a tiered cake). The toughest and most important part is keeping your Fondant thin, moist and use extra caution (with fingernails) to prevent it from tearing. Always great for white on white wedding cakes.....think about painting or dusting your Fondant drape with opalescent color to make it more striking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from when i saw the technique i thought it would be difficult but when i started it was very easy to make. i actually used for the first wedding cake i made in June this year . it actually made my work look so professional and wow. since then i have used it severally to top cakes and hide tears on my cake that gives my cake this finesse look. i would want to use this medium to thank Wilton

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I rolled out the fondant, cut it to size and then literally picked it up like a piece of fabric and gathered it on the end. The most difficult part of this technique for me was figuring out how to place the start of the drape so it would look nice. Once I got past that, the results were outstanding. I did my nephew's wedding cake with this technique and everyone loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Draping is a beautiful accent that can dress up just about any cake. They are not quite as easy as other techniques if you are looking to do them right but they aren't that difficult either. Definitely a technique worth practicing though
