Only Rolled Fondant icing will form a drape! The luxurious folds add richness to any cake application. Don’t roll the fondant too thin – the weight of the drape may tear the ends.


Step 1: Roll out fondant

Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut rectangles in the sizes and numbers stated in the cake instructions.

Step 2: Gather

Immediately gather the short ends of the rectangle, pinching together to form drapes. Trim ends with scissors, if needed.

Step 3: Attach

Attach drapes to cake by brushing back with water or fondant adhesive.
