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 I don't consider myself all that experienced but found these easier than I thought. There look very elegant and I will definitely use them again.

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
