Fabric Fondant Billow Weave Cake

Fabric Fondant Wedding Cake Tutorial

Fabric Fondant 21st birthday cake!

I posted  a few days ago Sydney will be turning 21, and I am creating a few different cakes for her to choose from for her party. This is the first cake for her to view. This cake is a billow weave, Susan Trianos has a wonderful video explaining how she creates a wonderful tufted billow weave cake. The first time I saw the billow weave I thought of Sydney, between her love of fashion and fondant cakes, I knew she would adore the fabric fondant cake.

Generally, Sydney and I will construct a cake together via FaceTime, it is fun to create the same cake in two time zones; however I didn’t want her to see the cake until it was finished. She saw the cake for the first time when she proof read the last post Fabric Sugar Paste Rose. As I suspected she was delighted with the fabric look.
