How to make edible drapes


Hello muffins, I’ve had a fabulous response to my Belle from Beauty and the Beast inspired cake. Thank you very much. I have had enquiries as to how I made the drapes around the top tier. So, from me to you, here is a picture tutorial to show you how!


  1. You will need modelling paste, three dowels, a rolling pin and a cornflour dusted surface.
  2. Roll out a strip of your modelling paste to the thickness of about 3mm.
  3. Space your dowels evenly on your surface.
  4. Lay your modelling paste over the top and gently press down onto the dowels, making sure you can clearly see them through the paste.
  5. Pull your dowels out carefully.
  6. Pinch together the modelling paste to create pleats. 
  7. Cut off both ends and affix to your cake with edible glue.

Hope it helps and make sure to let me know on Facebook or Twitter how you get on!
