The luxurious folds of a fondant drape add richness as a side garland or as skirt accents. Make a larger, more dramatic drape by cutting a larger rectangle. Be sure not to roll out fondant too thick before gathering?the weight of the drape may tear the ends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momlittr 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 wawawight 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by mlepore 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
