  • Satin Ice Fondant
  • CMC powder
  • Extruder tool
  • Waves template
  • Shortening
  • Fondant Glue

Let's Get Started:

  • First of all, I got my template ready. In making these templates, I measured the height of my cake tiers first. And then I drew the waves on a piece of paper. Next, I turned the paper over, and traced the waves pattern on the reverse side of the paper. After that, I took a clean sheet of parchment paper and traced the waves (from the reverse side on the first paper) onto my parchment paper.

  • Next, I turned the parchment paper over and stick to a cake board with some blue tag. The reason I turned the parchment paper over is to make sure the pencil marks on the paper do not get transferred to my fondant. And then I applied shortening on it so that the lines on the other side of the paper become visible.

  • Next, I prepared my fondant. I added the blue food coloring and CMC powder and kneaded it well. Then filled the extruder with it.

  • I then piped the fondant and arranged it following the lines on my templates - then set the waves aside to set.

  • Once set, I remove the fondant, one by one to attach to the cake. To make sure the fondant waves stick strongly onto the cake, I used fondant glue instead of shortening because the waves were kind of heavy and shortening would not be able to hold them in place.

  • I started with the smallest wave and finished with the tallest for each tier.

  • And while waiting for the fondant glue to dry and set, I used my food coloring bottles to hold the waves in place.

  • Once the glue was set, I removed the bottles and the waves were complete!
