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.
It is done pretty much how it looks. Roll up fondant balls, all the same size, and attach with 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.
I love the dirt look it gives.
And I enjoy what they add to my cakes.
(And then send a picture, or add a photo to the flickr group here. I love seeing what you’re making.)
