A ruffle can be gently flowing or tightly gathered – you choose! To create an even softer look, after cutting your fondant strip, roll the ball tool, dipped in cornstarch, along one edge.


Step 1: Roll out fondant

Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut a strip 2 to 3 times the length of the size of the finished ruffle.

Step 2: Fold sections

Starting on one side, fold small sections of the strip together vertically to form individual ruffles. Continue adding strips by tucking the cut end under the previous ruffle.

Step 3: Attach

Attach ruffle to cake by brushing top with water or fondant adhesive.
