Ruffles are the perfect design for a girl’s cake no matter what ate. Whether she’s five or fifty a few ruffles are bound to lift her spirits.

How do you make ruffles on cakes?

Did you know that ruffles can be made is so many different ways?

  • You can cut strips of fondant thin them out and attach them to the cake.
  • You can cut circles, thin the edges, then pinch them to create a ruffle and attach these to the cake.
  • And you can also do the same with petals, as well as square pieces of fondant.

What paste do you use to make ruffles?

I find the best paste to use for ruffles is a mix or 50% fondant and 50% gumpaste. The gumpaste ensures we can roll the paste thinly and still thin them further with a ball tool. The fondant keeps them soft so they don’t become hard and difficult to eat when the cake is cut.

6 Tips for making fondant ruffles

  1. Cover the cake in fondant and let the cake airdry before you attach the ruffles. The drying helps the fondant set around the cake so you can press the ruffles firmly and they won’t fall off. ( I usually leave the cake overnight to dry off)
  2. Prepare your colors a few hours ahead of time. This helps the gelatin in the paste set again and it’s not so sticky and soft to roll and cut and you won’t need too much flower.
  3. Ruffles are delicate and bouncy giving you the feeling of light and airy. So roll the fondant thinly. No one likes big fat ruffles.
  4. Cut the fondant with clean edges. Use sharp pizza wheels or cutter. The shaggy edges when thinned give an untidy look.
  5. This the edges of the fondant this will add that feeling of lightness to the ruffles
  6. Ruffles take long (hours). Either work in batches or take breaks.
