Fondant ropes are an easy way to add dimension and color to a project. The twisted texture of the rope is outstanding for a cake border, garlands or shaped into candies like candy canes and lollipops. Can be used with the natural twisting look or smoothed out; it can have a tailored look or be fun and casual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by goldiekat from These make a great accent to a cake or even putting on top of a cupcake. I use the colors from the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cakeitup from as a border it's wonderful. making the rope thinner, one can use it to spell out a names and numbers too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tcinkan from This is a very easy way to add a fun border to a cake. You can use this technique on a buttercream or fondant covered cake. You can also use this technique to make candy canes, if you let the fondant dry you can also stand them up. Once you have the two lines of fondant, you can twist them quickly by gently sliding your hands over the lines in opposites directions. If you ropes are not long enough to go around the cake, cut the ends at an angle, then cut the opposite angle on the next rope. they will lay together nicely and the seam will hardly be noticeable.
