Pleated Fan with Sugar Sheets
If you love the texture that draped fondant brings to your cakes, try this easy Sugar Sheets! technique. Flexibility makes Sugar Sheets! a great material for creating deeply ridged decorations.
Cut Sugar Sheets! to desired size. Here, we've cut a 2 x 4 in. rectangle.
Turn piece over and dust back side (shiny side) lightly with confectioners' sugar to prevent piece sticking to itself.
Turn piece front side up. Begin to fold gently from one short side. On this piece, folds are 5/16 in. wide.
Fold next section back in the opposite direction.
Continue gently folding back and forth until full length is folded. Be careful not to press hard to prevent piece from cracking.
Brush folds on front and back side (shiny side) of one end with damp brush.
Pinch folds together to form fan shape.
Attach pleated fans to bottom border of cake with piping gel.
