I have had a few of you ask me about how to go about putting a border on the bottom of you cake.
It's not an edible border but it's pretty and very clean looking.
That's it. You can use many widths, styles, and colors of ribbon to really add some great detail.
(or to the left if you're let handed.)
Roll out your extra fondant and using a ruler, make long strips of fondant.
Attach then to the base of the cake with a little water.
**I actually use an extruder to produce nice even ropes for my borders.
It keeps things clean and consistent.**
Fondant rope has lots of options.
Make sure to not press too hard, losing the shape of the rolled fondant border.
Changing up the imprints for each tier added some great detail.
Mix them all together.
I love the dirt look it gives.
And I enjoy what they add to my cakes.
Let me know if you have any questions.......and go have fun with it.
(And then send a picture, or add a photo to the flickr group here. I love seeing what you're making.)
